Rootkit Hunter 1.3.5-dev progress

Updated 08-05-2009 at 10:49 AM by unSpawn

Take a peak at RKH's SF CVS stats and you will see that activity picked up again. Currently the RKH 1.3.5(-dev) Changelog (rev1.119) lists 16 bugfixes, 13 new items, 14 changes and counting.

It was a bit sad to notice some of the existing signatures were incomplete though. And while everyone knows breaches of security "the old school rootkit way" have dropped to nil, RKH aims to be complete. So I'll be replaying rootkit installs again and working on improving rootkit checks...

Slackware pre- and post-installation routine...

Slackware is a great Linux distribution. It is fast, stable, and easily maintained. It is also easy to customize to users' tastes, which is a good thing because a certain amount of customization is necessary for a fully useful installation.
