In your case it should generate 40-bit (0x28) keys, effectively discarding all but first five bytes of the MD5 output. To achieve similar behavior with CommonCrypto you can try this: CCCryptorCreate(kCCDecrypt, kCCAlgorithmRC4, 0, ...

Now since I knew that the RKhunter program is just a script, it seemed reasonable NOT to panic, since such scripts generally lack the sophisticated heuristics needed to correctly filter false-positives. A quick check of the RKhunter rootkit “/var/log/rkhunter.log” log-file revealed the following: ...
