The chkrootkit security scanner searches the local system for signs
that it is infected with a 'rootkit'. Rootkits are set of programs
and hacks designed to take control of a target machine by using known
security flaws.
Types that chkrootkit can identify are listed on the project's home page.
Please note that where chkrootkit detects no intrusions, this does
not guarantee that the system is uncompromised. In addition to
running chkrootkit, more specific tests should always be performed.
