How To make chkrootkit e-mail you daily
Make chkrootkit e-mail you the scanned files log daily. This is a great way to maintain a secure server, just skim over the e-mail every day/night looking for root kit infections.
1. Login to your server as root. (SSH)
2. Load crontab
Type: crontab -e
3. Add this line to the top:
0 1 * * * (cd /path/to/chkrootkit; ./chkrootkit 2>&1 | mail -s “chkrootkit output” root)
This will run CHKROOTKIT at 1am every day, and e-mail the output to root.
