    This just cropped up in our rkhunter log and I've never come across this one before.

    Warning: Suspicious file types found in /dev:
    /dev/.udev/queue.bin: VAX-order 68K Blit (standalone) executable

    Makes me feel a bit uneasy.
    Anyone know if I should be uneasy!
    Thanks.

    Hello :)

    You can search for "/dev/.udev/queue.bin" on a search engine such as Google and there are a few results with discussions of this report from RKHunter.

    Thank you.

    Thanks Michael, I did just that before submitting the post. Actually I searched for "VAX-order 68K Blit" and that threw up a bunch of results; some relating to malware and another to backdoors on switches. The warning has now gone in the log. I was unable to find any reference to "/dev/.udev/queue.bin" with VAX-order on Google however.

    Thank you for taking the time to answer this query.

    You may need to consult with a qualified system administrator or security expert if you want to have your system examined to determine if it was exploited.

    Thank you.
