    Rkhunter vs. Chkrootkit - Best way to run?

    A couple days ago, I installed Rkhunter 1.3.0. I updated it, ran it, and put in my my crontab.root

    30 23 * * * /usr/local/bin/rkhunter --cronjob > /dev/null

    I just finished installing chkrootkit 0.48. I ran it and everything seems fine.

    Is there a way to run this as a service?? I ask because in my VPS control panel, the security check still shows that Chkrootkit isn't installed.

    Do I put it in the crontab.root file, or does it run as a service?

    Also... Does it do the same thing as Rkhunter, or should I have them both installed?

    I'd just have Rkhunter installed because Chkrootkit is basically the same thing.

    I prefer Rkhunter myself

    Life's what you make it.
