checkroot v1.4 released

Categoría: programs,
Origen: checkroot,
Idioma: en,
Tipo:
update

reports an error if rpm --verify fails. ** important ** (problem has arosen due to a bug in rpm (bug 527191).
added the --update and --seekunknown switches: They provide a better coverage/hit rate where package headers have to be downloaded (due to an invalid signature).
continue scanning on reinvocation if interrupted by keyboard (even if root has different mountpoint),
rootkit.files: added rpm (a very common target for rootkits)
