rootkit, backdoor, sniffer and exploit scanner

Rootkit Hunter scans systems for known and unknown rootkits, backdoors, sniffers and exploits.

It checks for:

 - SHA256 hash changes;
 - files commonly created by rootkits;
 - executables with anomalous file permissions;
 - suspicious strings in kernel modules;
 - hidden files in system directories;
and can optionally scan within files.

Using rkhunter alone does not guarantee that a system is not compromised. Running additional tests, such as chkrootkit, is recommended.

Tags: Implemented in: sh, bash, ksh, tcsh and other shells, User Interface: Command Line, Role: role::program, scope::utility, Security: Intrusion Detection, File Integrity, Purpose: use::checking, use::scanning
