Bug#872617: rkhunter doesn't work with unhide.rb

Package: rkhunter
Version: 1.4.2-6+deb9u1
Severity: normal


I have rkunter and unhide.rb installed. But the hidden_procs test is skipped.
It only works if unhide (C) is installed. If both are installed, the
DISABLE_UNHIDEi variable seems to be of no effect. Taking a look into
/usr/bin/rkhunter it seems to me, that it doesn't look for unhide.rb at all.
So I wonder, if unhide.rb is supported or used by rkhunter or not.

Regards, Daniel
