OS X Rootkit Hunter is based on Michael Boelen`s "rootkit hunter"
but little modified for easier/better usability on Mac OS X.
OS X Rootkit Hunter is scanning tool to detect nasty tools on your Mac. This tool scans for rootkits, backdoors and local exploits by running tests like:
- Look for files used by rootkits
- Look for suspected strings
- Look for hidden files
- Scans within plaintext and binary files
and much more...
- Mac OS X 10.5 "Leopard"
- Administrator privileges
- Direct internet access if you want to do an rootkit db update
