Ástþór IPÁstþór IP

Rootkit hunter (rkhunter)rkhunter (Rootkit Hunter) is a tool that scans for rootkits, backdoors and possible local exploits. It does this by comparing SHA-1 hashes of important files with known good ones in online database, searching for default directories (of rootkits), wrong permissions, hidden files, suspicious strings in kernel modules, and special tests for Linux and FreeBSD.

1. Install rkhunter

apt-get install rkhunter

2. Run rkhunter to check your server

rkhunter --check
