WRVS4400n - hacked?

We opened shop today to find the WRVS4400N was reset to defaults with two exceptions; it would allow WAN changes, and there was a HxtR service for port forwarding to 4192.

We had several VPN tunnels programed and no port forwarding. We had a non-standard DHCP as well as a custom LAN subnet.

Methinks the router has been hacked.

How can I tell if the firmware is not stock or the programming is corrupted?

I did the reset thing, however does that really erase everything?

Next, how can I reset this router to be ABSOLUTELY sure there is nothing afoot?

Any help will be really appreciated.
