    Description: rootkit, backdoor, sniffer and exploit scanner
     Rootkit Hunter scans your system for known and unknown rootkits,
     backdoors, sniffers and exploits.
     Some of the tests it does:
       - MD5 hash compare
       - Look for default files used by rootkits
       - Wrong file permissions for binaries
       - Look for suspected strings in LKM and KLD modules
       - Look for hidden files
       - Optional scan within plaintext and binary files
     Please note that rkhunter does *not* guarantee your system has
     not been compromised! You should also run additional tests, e.g. using
     chkrootkit and other measures.
