Bug#765896: rkhunter: please enable unide[.rb] checks per default

Package: rkhunter
Version: 1.4.2-0.1
Severity: wishlist


Please enable the unhide[.rb] checks in the default config.

rkhunter Recommonds unide.rb|unhide, so most people will have it
installed anyway.

Also, the unide[.rb] packages don't carry out their own automatic
checks (via cron or so), so having them run automatically viy
rkhunter does seem to make sense.

To enable it, I guess:
- "hidden_procs" must be removed from DISABLE_TESTS
- also DISABLE_UNHIDE should be left at it's default "0" since
  a) it may be better anyway to run both and
  b) having "1" would disable hidden_procs again if "only" the
     C unhide package was installed.
