    Default Rkhunter-Warning Meaning?

    Hi,

    I have just moved from openSUSE 12.1 32-bit to 12.2 64-bit.
    All OK.

    As root I update Rkhunter 1.3.8 and run it: rkhunter --checkall
    It shows lots directories of :
    /sbin
    /usr
    /bin
    as [ Warning ]

    A directory access permissions is:
    ~> ls -la /sbin/modinfo
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 31320 26 sep 11:17 /sbin/modinfo

    The same with:
    Checking if SSH root access is allowed [ Warning ]
    Checking if SSH protocol v1 is allowed [ Warning ]
    ...
    Checking for hidden files and directories [ Warning ]

    Meaning? What to do?

    Thanks,
    PV

    I think it means that the designers of rkhunter disagree with your choice.

    What I did, was uninstall rkhunter. It wasn't reporting anything useful. It was just producing noise.

    rkhunter tend to flag legit files, I also had this question and the answer is: uninstall and install chkrootkit
