rootkit, backdoor, sniffer and exploit scanner

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

It checks for:

 - MD5 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.
