security problems or not??

    When I start the security-check in Plesk I get the message, that there are big security problems in the system and the hint, to look in the logfile.

    The logfile shows a lot OK, NOT FOUND and so on and closes with the entry "No warnings were found while checking the system".

    So, what does this mean??

    Probably the Rootkit Hunter found new packages versions which are not listed in it's database, that is why the message like "NOT FOUND" appears. Please, try to update the Rootkit Hunter database manually with following command:

    $PRODUCT_ROOT_D/admin/sbin/modules/watchdog/rkhunter --configfile $PRODUCT_ROOT_D/etc/modules/watchdog/rkhunter.conf --update

    Before execution of command above replace $PRODUCT_ROOT_D with /usr/local/psa or /opt/psa.
    You may get value of variable $PRODUCT_ROOT_D in file /etc/psa/psa.conf on your server.

    Please, check the following article for more information:

    Thank you for the hint, but this did not help.

    I tried the command and got 9 times "No update" for the checked files. After that I run the job again und got the same result. But I found out, that it is this job that is producing the error:


    And the log looks like this:

    [ Rootkit Hunter version 1.3.4 ]

    Checking rkhunter data files...
    Checking file mirrors.dat [ No update ]
    Checking file programs_bad.dat [ No update ]
    Checking file backdoorports.dat [ No update ]
    Checking file suspscan.dat [ No update ]

    Checking file i18n/zh [ No update ]
    Checking file i18n/zh.utf8 [ No update ]
    Invalid option specified: --report-mode

    So how can that "invalid option" be corrected?

    TIA, Detlef

    I am seeing this one, too.

    What is your suggestion Nataliya ?

    Das Verhältnis von Bugs zu Service ist bei Parallels offenbar umgekehrt proportional ... Schade ...
