root kit hunter question


My rthunter report gives me the following warnings:

Code:
Performing filesystem checks
     checking /dev for suspicious file types [Warning]
     checking for hidden files and directories [Warning]
While it is scanning, I can see warnings on over a dozen or so binary executable commands, most of which I use routinely.

The command I used to scan is
Code:
sudo rkhunter --checkall
Should I be concerned?

The documentation tells you to look at the log file contents and investigate each warning. If you have read the documentation and verified integrity / validity without finding discrepancies then the answer is "no", if you didn't then the answer is "please first read the documentation for tools you use".
