I recently installed rkhunter and it gave me two warnings for /dev files is there any way to find a list of normal files in /dev?. I only ask because I ran wireshark and found several ip address which could not be identified. I recently set up my firewall, and had been using a adobe flash chat which I am sure is not very secure or safe (I recently started working on a server, and development with ruby so am trying to operate more safely with this machine). Thank you for any help you may provide.

There should be no 'normal files' in the devices folder.

  • Ok, I assume then nothing is wrong. I noticed all of a sudden serveral telnet attempts to connect, and several known malicious ip's trying to connect, so was worried. Just making sure, and thank you for your input.
