I've commented the issue in our bugtracker but since it is posted
here I'll reply here as well. I have tested RKH before releasing
against similar malware. Running suspscan with your file set it
marks 48 of them as suspicious. It is not that RKH can't detect
them but how you configured SUSPSCAN_DIRS in rkhunter.conf. When
you enable suspscan to look for files in the context of say Apache
HTTPd you should consider adding all directories the user Apache
runs as has write access to to the list. So if it can write to
/var/www and /var/log/httpd you should add those too. (I've added
this in CVS as a remark in rkhunter.conf).
