I am trying to run rkhunter, but it is giving me this output:

➜ sudo rkhunter --check
Invalid BINDIR configuration option: Invalid 
directory found: ~/.dotnet/tools
Invalid BINDIR configuration option: Invalid 
directory found: 

How do I go into my PATH variable and remove these directories from all shell sessions? None of these directories are in my .bash_profile or .bashrc.

  • There is no reference to BINDIR in rkhunter.conf. And what do you mean by root's PATH? @dsstorefile1 – Cody Rutscher Aug 29 '18 at 17:46
  • root's PATH is the PATH of the user root. But sudo without -i shouldn't read root's profile. Themessage is about BINDIR. Try env -i /usr/bin/sudo rkhunter --check. – RalfFriedl Aug 29 '18 at 17:52
  • stack/security/rkhunter-1.4.6 ➜ env -i /usr/bin/sudo rkhunter --check Password: sudo: rkhunter: command not found @RalfFriedl – Cody Rutscher Aug 29 '18 at 17:54
  • Do you want me to post some of the information from rkhunter.conf?@dsstorefile1 – Cody Rutscher Aug 29 '18 at 17:54

    Awesome. That worked. This may be off topic, but do you know if it says "warning", does that mean I have one or is it just a warning? – Cody Rutscher Aug 29 '18 at 18:36
