for Windows use Rootkit Revealer, you can get it in the useful programs-downloads. for *nix systems use chkrootkit, you can get a RH9-RPM in the Unix/Linux-downloads, source files or RPMs for other distros can be found here: http://www.chkrootkit.org or here: http://www.rpmseek.com
:wink:

well, depends on what has been found. not everything has to be a rootkit, some normal processes hook up on other ones too. google for the results and/or post what has been found... :wink:
rootkits are more used on servers than on normal user boxes, and to install one the system has to be compromised first, it´s not possible to install a rootkit on a box by sending it as an attachment for example like it´s done with the usual malware like trojans.
