Zero-length bash .history file!
Routinely running chkrootkit yesterday, I noted a warning to the effect that root's bash .history file was found to be zero-length. Since I'm about as sure as I can be that I didn't do that myself, I'm wondering if this means that the system has been cracked. Are there other tests I can run to double-check, somehow? :eek:
Thanks in advance,
P.S. I didn't find other threads about this in LQ.

In SuSE the default history file size is 1000.
You can log in as root and use these commands to verify that bash's .history is in fact zero length:
