    Cron job file and rkhunter.log

    I clicked on my file system and typed in my root password and began to follow the path to my cron jobs file; var/spool/cron/root.
    Trying to look at the cron file a window opened in red with:
    Code:
    You do not have permissions necessary
    Two very disturbing things happened. I discovered that I do not have the /root file and I was given a 'Warning'
    Why the warning?.....I did sign in as root-

    When I ran <#cat /var/log/rkhunter.log> in the terminal the output was:
    " [23:05:50] Warning: Hidden directory found: /etc/.java
    " [23:05:50] Warning: Hidden directory found: /dev/.udev
    " [23:05:50] Warning: Hidden directory found: /dev/.initramfs

    " [23:05:50] Possible rootkits: 2
    " [23:05:50] Rootkit names : Xzibit Rootkit, Xzibit Rootkit

    Is this serious?
    If so what do I need to do?

    Re: Cron job file and rkhunter.log

    I think it is a false-positive but I don't know how to check-
    How do I tell since the file says:
    You do not have permissions necessary
    Also, I have been studying the Shell Scripting Guide because I have never writen a script before. I'm trying to learn so I can have a script for cron jobs for rkunter and chrootkit. Here's were I started:

    Where else could I learn about shell scripting?
