    Hi,

    Try this:
    9 3 * * * (/usr/local/bin/rkhunter --cronjob -l --nomow --rwo | mail -s "[PUT IN MEANINGFUL SERVER NAME] rkhunter output" [VALID EMAIL ADDRESS])

    change the [servername] and [e-mail address] parts
    This will check daily.

    Ronald.

    Yep.

    +---------------- minute (0 - 59)
    | +------------- hour (0 - 23)
    | | +---------- day of month (1 - 31)
    | | | +------- month (1 - 12)
    | | | | +---- day of week (0 - 7) (Sunday=0 or 7)
    | | | | |
    * * * * * command to be executed

    I have it scheduled to run a little over 3 o'clock
    You can change the time if you like to have an other schedule.

    Am I doing anything incorrectly? It's not sending.

    35 9 * * * /usr/local/bin/rkhunter --cronjob -l --nomow --rwo | mail -s "rkhunter output" [myemail]


    Also tried:
    35 9 * * * (/usr/local/bin/rkhunter --cronjob -l --nomow --rwo | mail -s "rkhunter output" [myemail])

    Did you put your email without the brackets?

    Hello,

    Add cron for rkHunter :

    vi /etc/cron.daily/rkhunter.sh
    #!/bin/bash
    (/usr/local/bin/rkhunter --update && /usr/local/bin/rkhunter -c --nocolors --skip-keypress --summary 2>&1 | mail -s "RKhunter Scan Details" username@yourdomain.com)
    chmod a+x /etc/cron.daily/rkhunter.sh

    Add cron for chkrootkit :

    touch /etc/cron.daily/chkrootkit.sh
    Next, use your favorite text editor, and add the following text to the chkrootkit.sh file.
    #!/bin/bash
    cd /usr/local/src/chkrootkit-0.43/
    ./chkrootkit 2>&1 | mail -s "chkrootkit Scan” username@yourdomain.com

    chmod a+x /etc/cron.daily/chkrootkit.sh

    Regards,
