    Rootkit hunter warnings
    I've had my Mac 21.5" for a month now.

    Decided to run rootkit hunter as I had it on my Linux box, it's the only security program i run

    Got the following warnings, can anyone tell me whether or not I should worry about them?

    The Apache ones are strange, I do have Xampp but the server wasn't running when I did the scan.

    Syslog configuration file allows remote logging: install.* @127.0.0.1:32376
