I recently had this in the chkrootkit output comparison :

+! 7:0|          255 0:0|242:0|243:0|245:0|253:1|254:1|7:0| -stringPrefs 3:7;release|174:3;1.0|191:332;  ¼½¾ǃː??։֊׃״܁܂܃܄ᅟᅠ᜵           ???‐’․‧??????? ‹›⁁⁄⁒ ⅓⅔⅕⅖⅗⅘⅙⅚?⅜⅝⅞⅟∕∶⎮╱⧶⧸⫻⫽⿰⿱⿲⿳⿴⿵⿶⿷⿸⿹

This happened since I updated to DEBIAN 9, so I guess it's a debian stuff.

Any advices would be great, thank you.

Possible bug, check what's in /var/log/chkrootkit, or just go and purge apt-get purge chkrootkit or try to reinstall: sudo apt-get install --reinstall chkrootkit

  • It's an output from log.today, I use automated mailing and chkrootkit compare everyday log of yesterday (log.expected) with the new one (log.today). This output doesn't happen everytime but appears on both computers running DEBIAN 9. – pΛÿÐΛÿ Sep 28 '17 at 12:31
