    - Look for default files used by rootkits
    - Wrong file permissions for binaries
    - Look for suspected strings in LKM and KLD modules
    - Look for hidden files
    - Optional scan within plaintext and binary files

    Rootkit Hunter is released as GPL licensed project and free for everyone to use.

    Actually this rootkit is still in it's infancy. I also thought that it would be worth a look for people on this forum.

    I will try this one out though

    <edit>
    Have tried it, and I must say, it looks realy good..
    It has the SUSE boot sequence charm (nice green [ OK ] signs)
    and realy seems to work well..
    need to check out if it detects any at all (I was clean )

    Kstat is also a good tool for detecting Kernel rootkits.

    Yes a trojan would be similar to a root kit. The difference is the power of Unix based OSs is its command line, the power of Windows based systems is its GUI. So that is why a trojan is a little better. There are Rootkits for windows though.

    But doesn't a rootkit change services ? I am gonna take a guess but is there a rootkit for windows that changes : ftp , telnet , netstat and the sort. Or would it change something different ?

    I've also read somewhere that if someone manages to replace your msgina.dll [ might be wrong with the file name ] with a trojaned one then well your basically screwed. The reason why I cannot remember.
