thanks to all who responded fast as usual! Here is the summary:

The tool I was looking for is "lsof" and it is available at sunfreeware.
Thanks to Rick, Tony, Marcos (aka gandalf ;) and John!

Rick also proposed to get chkrootkit too (which is a good idea on this
box I fear...)

from Tery:
It is not unusual for crackers to mask their activities by replacing key 
utilities with modified copies of the same utilities.  These modified
utilities show everything but the activity of the cracker.  You have to
get a known good copy of the utilities you are using.  These can be used
off the installation CDs if you mount them on the computer.  The known
good utilities will show the relationships you seek.  Trust NOTHING off
the cracked box.
