Check the package manager for either chkrootkit or Rootkit Hunter I think one or both may be there. Good Luck
If you don't like it, make something better
If you can't make something better, adapt
If you can't do either ball your panties up and cry.

Complaining is like masticating most anyone can do it.
However doing it in public is really hardcore.

I've used chkrootkit before. I've never had a problem though, so I can't tell you how well it works.
