    rkhunter log

    I've just installed rkhunter & run it (under ubuntu 12.10). All looks to be ok apart from a few possible issues I'll list below.
    Reason I'm posting it I ran rkhunter in terminal & got its output, but it is saving the log to /var/log/rkhunter.log
    When I try to open this (graphically) in a text editor I get the message:

    Could not open the file /var/log/rkhunter.log.
    You do not have the permissions necessary to open the file.
    Can someone let me know how I can set the permissions on the created log file so that I'm able to access the log report?

    Also in the results from rkhunter I got
    /usr/bin/unhide.rb [ Warning ]
    I gather from other posts this is nothing to worry about, if so how do I whitelist it so it doesn't come up in future?

    Also I got:
    Performing filesystem checks
    Checking /dev for suspicious file types [ Warning ]
    Checking for hidden files and directories [ Warning ]
    Is this anything to be concerned about?

    We all get that output.

    To see the log use gksudo gedit.
