Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

1) i went to the terminal
2) i used chkrootkit
3) one file came up as searching for suckitrootkit warning :/sbin/init INFECTED
After Thought: after checking rootkit one of the files being /sbin/init seems to be infected with a suckit root kit
SucKIT :is a rootkit presented in Phrack issue 58, article 0x07 ("Linux on-the-fly kernel patching without LKM", by sd & devik). This is a fully working rootkit that is loaded through /dev/kmem (i.e. it does not need a kernel with support for loadable kernel modules. It provides a password protected remote access connect-back shell initiated by a spoofed packet (bypassing most of firewall configurations), and can hide processes, files and connections.

jdkaye probably meant that your post lacks even most basic information, and so borders on spam.
It was a combination of the double posting and writing "suckutrootkit" which they OP has belatedly changed to "suckitrootkit" which shows up in the log file as "Suckit Rootkit"
Have a look at the other thread.
What the OP doesn't realize is some of us actually use google to try & assist them.
As far as demanding a responce in such a rude manner will not get the results demanded, especially since this is all voluntary support.
Distribution: Debian, Red Hat, Slackware, Fedora, Ubuntu
