|check_rootkit.gz||Place this script in your libexec directory. Documentation in the script.|
This small plugin uses the capabilities of the "Rootkit Hunter", an open source solution downloadable from http://sourceforge.net/projects/rkhunter/
The plugin just starts the program rkhunter (you have to put the program in your /etc/sudoers) and returns a warning or an alert - or an ok if anything is fine.
The command line in the perl script has to be modified conforming your needs. Please read the documentation from rootkit hunter carefully.

2. Also, my rkhunter binary was in /usr/bin/rkhunter, not in /usr/local/bin/rkhunter.
3. I had to change parts of line 61 in the script to sudo "rkhunter --quiet --check", as my rkhunter version did not know the allow-ssh-root-user option (and I didn't want it anyways).
Besides that, nice script!
