Worried about the security of your Unix box? Chkrootkit will check your machine for many common rootkits. Even if you’re confident your machine hasn’t ever been compromised this might be a good app to keep in mind just in case.. Not worried are you? Take a look at the readme for one such rootkit. It’s simple to run.
(thanks to Colm for those.)
