ChkRootkit is a rootkit detector, its job being to detect malicious software that could grant an unprivileged user, even a guest, full access to a machine. Imagine a website visitor taking control not only on the visited website, but also on the entire server hosting that specific website and most probably many other services.



Way to go ChkRootkit! A rootkit scanner vulnerable to privilege escalation is like using a fishing net for a condom.

As Thomas Stangner suggested, a fix to this issue would be quotation marks around the assignment:

file_port=”$file_port $i”
