# Rootkit Hunter scans files and systems for known and unknown rootkits,
# backdoors, and sniffers. The package contains one shell script, a few
# text-based databases, and optional Perl modules. This tool scans for #
rootkits, backdoors, and local exploits by running tests like: # # *
Comparing MD5 hashes # # * Looking for default files used by rootkits #
# * Checking for wrong file permissions for binaries # # * Looking for
suspected strings in LKM and KLD modules # # * Looking for hidden files

Unhide - The Open Source Forensic Tool

Unhide is a forensic tool to find processes and TCP/UDP ports hidden by
rootkits, Linux kernel modules or by other techniques. It includes two
utilities: unhide and unhide-tcp.

unhide detects hidden processes using three techniques:
# comparing the output of /proc and /bin/ps
# comparing the information gathered from /bin/ps with the one gathered
from system calls (syscall scanning)
# full scan of the process ID space (PIDs bruteforcing) unhide-tcp
identifies TCP/UDP ports that are listening but are not listed in
/bin/netstat through brute forcing of all TCP/UDP ports available.
@ This package can be used by rkhunter in its daily scans.
