[Freeswitch-users] rootkit?

A few files which you can choose to install to let the Freeswitch
developers access your machine remotely if you ask them to look at a
problem you're having with Freeswitch.

It's not a real rootkit - just the SSH public key for their private
key (so they don't need a password) and configuration files for bash +
emacs (so they're working in the environment they're used to). It
doesn't burrow into your OS, hide itself or any of the other insidious
things a real rootkit does, and once you delete the files they can no
longer access your machine.

It isn't installed unless you choose to do so.
