Rkhunter Email Warning Notification With Attached Log File

Rkhunter scans my computer for rootkits and unathorized software behavior. It even scans open ports. Now its reports are limited to an email notification and a short warning. I have modified the config to include an attached log file of the pertinent warning notification.

[/etc/rkhunter.conf]
MAIL_CMD=mail -s "rkhunter warnings found for ${HOST_NAME}" -a /var/log/rkhunter.log

The new email warning notification is more informative now.

Some Help You Are

Not all good motives end well. You thought you were doing somebody a favor but the other person is doing you mischief.
