rkhunter bad hashes


Rootkit Hunter found some bad or unknown hashes. This can be happen due replaced
binaries or updated packages (which give other hashes). Be sure your hashes are
fully updated (rkhunter --update). If you're in doubt about these hashes, contact
the author (fill in the contact form).

I get this message, update rkhunter and receive the same message.BTW It does NOT tell me what is bad.I run chkrootkit which finds no problems.

Cheers.

I suggest you go read up first, pointers below.


BTW It does NOT tell me what is bad.
Then you should look in the rkhunter.log.


Rootkit Hunter (abbrev.: RKH) since version 1.2.9 comes with more documentation like a FAQ. We also set preferred support options which leads to the rkhunter-users mailing list archives and the RKH FAQ.
Your question was already answered there (run hashupd) and a gazillion times I might add. If that ain't fixing it get on the rkhunter-users mailing list.
