Install RkHunter for Rootkit/Trojan Scanning
rkhunter (Rootkit Hunter) is a Unix-based 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 databases, searching for default directories (of rootkits), wrong permissions, hidden files, suspicious strings in kernel modules, and special tests for Linux and FreeBSD.
The tool has been written in Bourne shell, to allow for portability. It can run on almost all UNIX-derived systems.
