Mystery infestation strikes Linux/Apache Web sites

AVG now has a free RootKit detection program for Windows but not Linux yet. They offer AVG Anti-virus 7.5 for Linux distros such as Debian, Ubuntu, SuSe, RedHat Fedora Core, Novell Linux and Mandrake/Mandriva. It might be a good idea to contact AVG support and see if they can soon offer a Linux RootKit detection tool. I have a dual boot Sony VAIO VGN-CR123E with a 2GHz Core 2 Duo and 2 gigs of RAM running Vista & Kubuntu Hardy Heron and on Vista I'm using their new free AVG Anti-virus and Anti-spyware and the RootKit Detection Tool and they work pretty decent. Here's a couple links to scope it all out...
