rootkit hunter error MD5 in /sbin/ip ??

  1. i've tested a suse9.1 system with rkhunter.

    it reports all clean except an md5 error in /sbin/ip.

    i,ve reinstalled the package iproute2 (which contains /sbin/ip) and the
    problem is solved, the computer was compromised?

    Not necessarily. It just means that the MD5 sum didn't match what was
    expected. As far as you know, it could have just been corrupt.

  3. After updating my Fedora Core 3 a lot of binaries showed MD5 errors
    with rkhunter. After doing an rkhunter --update now it doesn't show
    any errors.

    the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn
    like fabulous yellow Roman candles.
