I used rkhunter to check for what evil might be going on. The only
thing it listed were 2 vulnerable apps that seem to just be "Old or
patched version" (OpenSSL 0.9.7a and PHP 4.3.9). This doesn't seem like
the problem (am I wrong?).
I realize that this is a basic question, but I'm a bit of a newbie. How
do I go about looking for modified RPMs?
