Rootkit Hunter 1.3.5-dev progress

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 until it's release time (RSN).

You are invited to test the CVS tarball. Just get it with 'wget' (if you already installed RKH please install in a different location) and please post problems/questions in the rkhunter-users mailing list.

If you choose to tangibly support RKH development: my gratitude!
