I ran the program and it showed a couple of warnings
2 file warnings and 2 hidden directory warnings. No Rootkits
Now what do I do?
Thanks

Howdy,

Rkhunter is quite useless. Relax and enjoy your Ubuntu system.

OK thanks.
It's hard though when you still have Bill Gate's blood running in your veins!:P

If you are behind a router, the chances of getting a rootkit are pretty slim, unless you install it yourself, if you don't have any ports open for services to use.

If you don't have any servers running, just sit back and enjoy using Ubuntu.

I have been using UNIX systems since 1984 (thousands of machines) and only fixed one rootkit issue some 15 years ago on a Solaris box.
