Bug Description

Please sync rkhunter 1.4.6-2 (universe) from Debian unstable (main)

[Impact]

* rkhunter on Ubuntu 18.04 produces messages like the following during its "shared memory segments" test (bug 1775939):

/usr/bin/rkhunter: 14795: [: /usr/lib/firefox/firefox: unexpected operator

* The script exits with an error as soon as it hits that broken check.

[Test Case]

 * Run `sudo rkhunter -c --enable ipc_shared_mem` and make sure the check completes and doesn't end prematurely.

 * Note that this is not a perfect test because the failure only occurs when a suspicious segment is found. I don't know how to trigger that manually.

[Regression Potential]

* Very low. This is a single-byte bashism fix.

* That package has been in Debian for more than 5 months without problems.

[Other Info]

Changelog entries since current bionic version 1.4.6-1:

rkhunter (1.4.6-2) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Raphaël Hertzog ]
  * Update team maintainer address to Debian Security Tools

  [ Francois Marier ]
  * Fix bashism (closes: #892012)

Wait - did you want this to go into Bionic, or just Cosmic?

Lukasz,

I just installed the proposed version and it ran fine. I didn't see that error message. I will be using this version daily and will let you know if something else pops up, but it seems to be fine.

Thanks to all for the work on this.
