Linux hardening with Lynis

Hey.

Looked over your link/app. how is this any different from
rkhunter/chkrootkit or any of the other apps that inspect files for
changes to indicate a potential root/virus issue?

Does anyone know of an app/process that can prevent a rootkit/virus
from modifying files, as opposed to simply detecting when/if a file
has been modified?

Thanks
