rootkit hunter false positive for Xzibit Rootkit on CentOS 4.8?

Does rootkit hunter false positive for Xzibit Rootkit on CentOS 4.8?

rkhunter picks it up but chkrootkit does not.

Hi Abe,

I had the same result with the latest version of RKHunter. Since I was sure that nothing could be on the machine I whitelisted the stuff that got reported after advice from the security forum.

Kind regards,

Seems to be either a bug or a false positive. If you Google for that there are several bug reports and posts concerning it.
