Summary     : Tool to locally check for signs of a rootkit
Description :
chkrootkit is a tool to locally check for signs of a rootkit.
It contains:

 * chkrootkit: shell script that checks system binaries for
   rootkit modification.

 * chklastlog: checks for lastlog deletions.
 * chkwtmp: checks for wtmp deletions.

* Tue Mar 18 2008 Michael Schwendt <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> - 0.48-6
- Delete the "suspect PHP files" check. Not only does it trigger
  SIGPIPE for file names which contain special unescaped characters,
  the second half is doubtful (it doesn't print any filenames and
  gets confused by binary file contents).
* Tue Feb 12 2008 Michael Schwendt <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> - 0.48-5
- Fix the empty warning of the shell history files anomalies check.
- Initialise two variables in chkdirs.c to silence compiler.
* Fri Feb  8 2008 Michael Schwendt <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> - 0.48-3
- rebuilt for GCC 4.3 as requested by Fedora Release Engineering
  (only in devel)
* Sat Jan 12 2008 Michael Schwendt <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> - 0.48-2
- Install README with mode 0644.
* Sat Dec 22 2007 Michael Schwendt <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> - 0.48-1
- Update to 0.48 (new tests, enhanced tests, minor bug-fixes).
