In this module you can Install RKHunter Scan.

Navigate to:

Security --> Security RKHunter Scan

RKHunter (Rootkit Hunter) is a Unix-based tool that scans for rootkits, backdoors and possible local exploits. It does this by comparing SHA-1 hashes of important files with known good ones in online databases, searching for default directories (of rootkits), wrong permissions, hidden files, suspicious strings in kernel modules, and special tests for Linux.

By clicking the install button, the module will be installed automatically (viassh can also be installed).

TheRkhunter will remain installed and working doing periodics cans and registering each one of them that in turn, you will be able to visualize and analyze each log in a simple way.
