This sure looks like a legitimate reboot to me (e.g. shutdown -r now);
note how your system daemons (named, syslogd) are being shut down with
SIGTERM. You can check with "last" (shutdown/reboot vs. crash).
I would highly recommend taking this machine offline and reinstalling
the OS, in addition to newfs'ing all existing filesystems (restore from
last known good backup). buildworld/installworld and
buildkernel/installkernel may not be enough depending on what the
individual did. It's likely the machine could be compromised in some
way, especially if there's any service on it which is public-facing,
regardless of authentication mechanisms you've deployed in front of it.
