Cordeiro posted the following message on the FreeBSD security list. I didn’t test it (I don’t have testing server).
…don’t use chkrootkit 0.46 on production machines.
The “chkproc” process sends a SIGXFSZ (25) signal to init,
that interprets this signal as a “disaster” and reboots
after a 30s sleep.
