Wall plate hot

I have an outlet in my basement that has a hot wall plate. Does it mean that the outlet is on it's way out?

How hot? Can you hold your fingers on it for a minute without being forced to pull away? Is there anything plugged into this outlet? Is it an ordinary duplex receptacle?

This could be very dangerous.
