To Remove Mining Rot which is eating CPU Time

I have 2 (two) Dedicated Servers hosted in an ISP, running LINUX Centos, Apache, PHP, Mysql, Postfix, Dovecot, Amavis, SpamAssassin, Clamav and so on.

These Servers were invaded by a known bitcoin mining plague called [kthrotlds], which took all crontabs, installed its danger code in them, does not permit to clear and restore them, and is in top of the machines, eating more than 900 of %CPU.

I need urgently to remove this plague, as well as identifying the backdoors through which they came into the Servers.

Skills: Linux, Apache, System Admin
