    As far as I am aware rkhunter checks both LD_PRELOAD and the ld.so.preload file. It has done this for some time, so the comment on 'blackhatacademy.org' that the rootkit is not detected by rkhunter does not seem true. Although RKH may not explicitly look for the rootkit, it will warn the user that LD_PRELOAD/ld.so.preload are being used.

    Hi jhorne,

    is it possible that rkhunter will report this as critical issue instead of warn only? As you know warn messages can be overlooked in rkhunter report.

    Thank you

    There is no such thing as a 'crtitical' issue in RKH. Tests are generally reported as either 'OK' or 'Warning'. All warnings indicate that something is not right or, at least, suspicious. It is for the user to check these using such options as '--rwo' and/or mailing the warnings to the sysadmin.
