    SSH to your server and run the following command:
    /usr/local/bin/rkhunter -c --skip-keypress --createlogfile
    When rkhunter is done scanning your server, check the log file /var/log/rkhunter.log for errors. Also watch for [BAD] output next to every binary package. If you get a couple of [BAD] outputs, you can seek help of an administrator.
