How to install rkhunter on a linux box and setup a cron job =)

This blog post is quite easy, it shows you how to install rkhunter on a linux machine and how to configure rkhunter to run periodically using a cron job.
RKhunter (rootkit hunter) is a program that takes a fingerprint of installed files and directories in your machine during install and compares the stored fingerprint against a fingerprint taken later on. It uses this fingerprint to determine if the files have changed, or if any files have been added or altered.

    Just installed cPanel on a VPS, and this is my first time doing so where security was a high-priority issue. This article saved my life. Thanks!

    is there a recommended way to run rkhunter without sudo in a terminal?
