    chkrootkit question

    I got the following line at the the end of my chkrootkit scan and wondered what it is?

    Checking `z2'... user david deleted or never logged from lastlog!

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    I think its saying there is a new user account that isn't listed from the last time you ran chkrootkit

    Would this be because it is a new install and it is the first time I have ran it?

    The important question here is did you create or delete user david? if the answer is no, then you need to dig deeper.

    Yes, I created the user david and is my user profile. I installed Ubuntu at the end of last week. I then installed chkrootkit yesterday.

    I am assuming that it is because it was the first time I ran chkrootkit?
