Version: 1.4.4-bp150.2.4

- Added the GLOBSTAR configuration file option. This will set the shells globstar option to allow recursive checks of directories. By default this option is disabled.
- Added a Japanese translation file.
- Added support for the 'BSDng' package manager option. This can be used by those *BSD systems which have the 'pkg' command available (currently later FreeBSD systems).
- The BSD package manager will now try the 'pkg_info' command '-W' option if the '-F' option fails.
- Added the LOCKDIR configuration option. It is now possible to specify the directory rkhunter will use to store the lock file (if USE_LOCKING has been set). The default is unset, and this will cause rkhunter to look for a directory to use. Details are in the configuration file.
- Added the ALLOWIPCPROC configuration file option. This can be used to whitelist suspicious processes using shared memory segments (found during the 'ipc_shared_mem' check).

  * 1.4.0 (01/05/2012)
  - Added the '--list propfiles' command-line option. This will dump
  out the list of filenames that will be searched for when building the
  fileproperties database. By default the list is not shown if just
  '--list' is used.
  - Added Jynx rootkit check.
  - Added Turtle/Turtle2 rootkit check.
  - Added KBeast rootkit check.
  - The installer now supports the Slackware TXZ package layout option.
  - Avoid checking exclamation points in ALLOWDEVFILE checks (this was
  caught on 01/05/2012 causing a reissue of the 1.4.0 release).
  use '%' as the space character. (Note: This is a temporary fix).
  - The ALLOWPROCDELFILE option can now use wildcards in the file
  - The '--list perl' command-line option now shows whether the perl
  command itself is installed or not.
  - The 'shared_libs' test now allows whitelisting of the preloading
  environment variables.
  - The '-r/--rootdir' command-line options, and the ROOTDIR
  configuration option are now deprecated. If they are used then an
  error message will be displayed. The options will have no effect,
  but rkhunter will continue. The options will be completely removed
  at the next release.
  - The 'hidden_ports' test will now show if a found port is TCP or
  - It is now possible to whitelist ports in the 'hidden_ports' test
  using the PORT_WHITELIST configuration option.
  - Allow the ALLOWPROCDELFILE option to work again.
  - Correct the check of the ProFTPD version number.
  - Fix the FreeBSD 'sockstat' command check to ensure that the correct
  fields are used.
  - Fix for newer version of the 'file' command when reporting scripts.
  - Fix the ALLOWHIDDENFILE option to allow hidden symbolic links.
  - The 'filesystem' check now handles files and directories with
  in their names correctly.
  - The 'startup_files' test was displaying file names with spaces in
  them incorrectly. Also the test was not checking files which were
  in hidden directories.
  options re-evaluate their whitelisting lists to ensure that any
  wildcard entries are the most recent. (A time window previously
  existed which meant that the list was processed, but new files
  could be created before the test was run. As such they were
  reported as false-positive warnings, when they should have been
  - Allow the EXISTWHITELIST option to work with symbolic links.
  - The test of whether prelinking is being used or not was sometimes
  causing the file properties hash test to be skipped, without the
  real reason being stated. Now the hash test will proceed but the
  user will still get a warning (because it detects that prelinking
  was used and is not now, or vice-versa).
  - Rkhunter will now check to see if the 'head' and 'tail' commands
  understand the '-n' option. If they do, then it will be used. If
  they do not, then the older 'head -1' and 'tail -1' commands will be

Version: 1.4.6-bp150.3.3.1
* Tue Sep 25 2018 Jan Engelhardt <>
- Replace %__-type macro indirections.
- Avoid repeating name in summary.
* Mon Sep 24 2018 Mathias Homann <>
- upgrade to version 1.4.6
  * 1.4.6 (20/02/2018)
  * New:
  - Added support for Alpine Linux (busybox).
  - Added the 'Diamorphine LKM' test.
  - Added the ALLOWIPCPID configuration file option. This will allow
  specific PIDs to be whitelisted from the shared memory check.
  - Added the ALLOWIPCUSER configuration file option. This will allow
  specific usernames to be whitelisted from the shared memory check.
  - Added the IPC_SEG_SIZE configuration file option. This can be used
  to set the minimum shared memory segment size to check. The default
  value is 1048576 bytes (1MB).
  - Added the SKIP_INODE_CHECK configuration file option. Setting this
  option will disable the reporting of any changed inode numbers.
  The default is to report inode changes. (This option may be useful
  for filesystems such as Btrfs.)
  - Added Ebury sshd backdoor test.
  - Added a new SSH configuration test to check for various suspicious
  configuration options. Currently there is only one check which
  relates to the Ebury backdoor.
  - Added basic test for Jynx2 rootkit.
  - Added Komplex trojan test.
  - Added basic test for KeRanger running process.
  - Added test for Keydnap backdoor.
  - Added basic test for Eleanor backdoor running process.
  - Added basic tests for Mokes backdoor.
  - Added tests for Proton backdoor.
  - Added the SUSPSCAN_WHITELIST configuration file option. This
  option can be used to whitelist file pathnames from the
  'suspscan' test.
  * Changes:
  - The 'ipc_shared_mem' test will now log the minimum segment size
  that will be checked. It will also log the size of any segments
  which appear suspicious (that is, larger than the configured
  allowed maximum size).
  - If verbose logging is disabled, then generally only the test
  name and the final result for the test will now be logged.
  - Kernel symbol checks will now use the '' file, if it
  exists, and no other kernel symbol file can be found.
  * Bugfixes:
  - For prelinked systems ensure that the default hash function is
  SHA1 and not SHA256.
  - The result from the 'hidden_procs' test was not being
  calculated correctly.
  - Checking the O/S version number could be missed in some cases.
  - Minor improvement to the *BSD immutable files check.
  - The 'OS_VERSION_FILE' configuration option pathname cannot be
  a link, but this was not checked.
  - Improved checks for the O/S name on Devuan systems.
  - Handling of the '/etc/issue' file during O/S detection has now
  improved. Escape sequences are either replaced or removed.
  - Not all the linux kernel module names were being checked.
  - The logging of detached memory segments tried to show the
  process pathname. This has now been corrected, and where no
  pathname is available, the segment owner and PID will be logged.
  - It was possible for the return code to be lost when running the
  'ipc_shared_mem' test. This has now been corrected.
  - Some configuration options were still not being handled correctly
  when specified more than once.
  - The 'ipc_shared_mem' test did not correctly handle whitelisting
  when a segment pathname was flagged as deleted. This has now
  been corrected.
  - Commands disabled in the configuration file were being logged
  as not found. They are now logged as having been disabled.
  - Disabling verbose logging could hide some warning messages.
  - The 'shared_libs' test now caters for simple filenames, as well
  as pathnames which contain the '$LIB', '$ORIGIN' or '$PLATFORM'
