Sniffer dog?

Post by catgate »

I have often wondered if Linux Mint had, in its compendium of goodies, a small facility for searching for, and removing of, things that creep in unnoticed.
I am not aware of having anything of that nature, but then If the creepy thing moves about unnoticed I would not know (would I?)

More info on rkhunter can be found here and here, but give a read of the Easy Linux Tips Project's page on security as well.
