When I run a scan with rkhunter I get 2 warnings. I checked the log file and warnings are as the following:

Warning: The command '/usr/bin/unhide.rb' has been replaced by a script: /usr/bin/unhide.rb: Ruby script, ASCII te$

[15:05:43]   Checking for hidden files and directories       [ Warning ]
[15:05:43] Warning: Hidden directory found: '/etc/.java'

What I should do to correct these problems? My OS is Debian wheezy 7.1.

  • I don't see anything that needs to be corrected. – jordanm Apr 4 '14 at 20:22
  • what about warnings ? – medBouzid Apr 4 '14 at 20:22
  • @ekaj it's a long time since I posted this, and If I still remember, I didn't anything, because it seems that it wasn't a security problem but just a warning as mentioned in the answer! – medBouzid Dec 24 '15 at 17:09

These look fairly benign, and you can probably just ignore them. Rkhunter and chkrootkit are very blunt tools, and they tend to give lots of false warnings.
