Thread: chkrootkit scan

  1. #1

    chkrootkit scan

    OK, I think I have attached a text file copy of a chkrootkit scan I did on my Knoppix system computer, and it mentions some suspicious files and I don't know if I shouldn't worry about them, or if they are something, what I would have to do to remove them. So, I am trying to post them here, and I really don't know if the file uploaded or not. It shows in the window when I push the attach file button, but, I don't see any indicator that the file is attached at this time. When I post I guess I will know. So, if anyone can tell me what these "suspicious files" are about and what I should do about them, I would really appreciate it.

    Greetings, E-Tramp.

    FWIW, .NET files come with the monthly security updates from Microsoft if
    you opt to do recommended Windows Updates.
    I presume the .NET material is harmless.
    Since I dont use any of their .NET services, these updates have the
    somewhat the same characteristic as spam in my situation.

    I have to admit I don't get this. Why would there even be .NET files in a Knoppix OS? I don't even know why I would have any files for .NET anything. I certainly haven't installed any .NET on my Knoppix system. Obviously this looks like a directory for a java program in root,usr, but, what does it go to and why? How can I track down what it is doing there?

    The following suspicious files and directories were found:
    /usr/lib/jvm/.java-1.6.0-openjdk-i386.jinfo /usr/lib/mono/xbuild-frameworks/.NETFramework /usr/lib/debug/.build-id /usr/lib/eclipse/p2/org.eclipse.equinox.p2.engine/.settings /usr/lib/eclipse/p2/org.eclipse.eq

    I don't know what it all means, but .NET is only part of what you've been told is suspicious.
    Everything seems to be in either /usr/lib or /lib.
    Start here, I guess.
    a. what is eclipse, anyway.
    b. what is .mdadm good for
    c. etc...

    And then there's this to consider:

    knoppix@Microknoppix:~$ apropos eclipse
    eclipse (1) - extensible tool platform and Java IDE

    This is what the system says about eclipse, and it seems to go with the Java .Net platform that as far as I know doesn't exist.

    It would appear that the .mdadm file is part of the RAID software. I don't actually have a RAID drives either, but the motherboard is capable of supporting RAID.

    knoppix@Microknoppix:~$ apropos .mdadm
    mdadm.conf (5) - configuration for management of Software RAID with mdadm

    knoppix@Microknoppix:~$ apropos python2.7
    python2.7 (1) - an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programmi...

    Above is all I can get with apropos on Python 2.7.

    Appearantly all of this has something to do with a .Net framework I don't think is even on my system. Lots of questions no answers!

    This is a very good point, but, I still wish I knew why I am looking at .Net entries, as I thought that was a Windows operation.
