    rkhunter: different numbers of Rootkit checked

    Hi,

    I installed rkhunter 1.3.6 on my server, and running it (sudo rkhunter -c), the result says that 244 Rootkit have been checked (Rootkits checked : 244).
    After I upgrade rkhunter to the last version (1.3.8 ), he just check 243 Rootkits (Rootkits checked : 243).

    rkhunter doesn't return any warning, and nothing have been modified between the two tests.

    I don't understand why there is a difference, does anybody know?

    Thank you!

    Possibly a test was taking out? Or perhaps two tests were combined? For instance there were multiple checks for phalanx maybe they have been rolled into one check now?

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you for your interest! I don't think that a test was taking out: I test another server with the same OS and version 1.3.8 of rkhunter, and it has 244 Rootkit checked, not 243... I test the first server (with 243 Rootkit checked) with chkrootkit, and nothing seems wrong.
