I'm pretty sure another person I work with filed it,
but precise had a recent fairly nasty problem. It
was creating a leaving behind a dangling /etc/nologin
link for some reason; and chkrootkit was claiming
that /sbin/init had 'suckit'. He did another Precise
install new and saw the same thing. Really scared the
hell out of us for awhile as it was a server that
was in use although not critical services.
