I was hoping someone running an up-to-date ubuntu 10.10 could just type:
Haven't used 10.10 for a little while but I booted into it from curiosity.
You asked for an up-to-date 10.10, (perhaps a contradiction in terms) so I updated and upgraded.
The md5sums were identical before and after the upgrade.
I also ran rkhunter -c, and got warnings (also the same before and after upgrading) for the following files:
dmesg, login, more, mount, su.
dpkg, dpkg-query, last, lastlog, ldd, logger, newgrp, passwd, perl, sudo, whereis.
ifdown, ifup, init, runlevel, sulogin
groupadd, groupdel, groupmod, grpck, nologin, pwck, useradd, userdel, usermod, vipw.
If you have a problem, mine's bigger than yours!
Being an optimist, I think the explanation is probably that I have mounted the partition that Maverick is on in another distribution. I've probably chrooted into it, and at one stage I dd'ed it into the partition it's in now.
However, I'm no security guru, so maybe some dark forces are preparing a sinister plot against me at this very moment. Think I'll go to bed and get some sleep: I'll need all my strength to counter their evil plans.
