It means some script somewhere did an rm -f on /dev/null

It looks more like a typo, as another poster said (one L).
Could be, but I had /dev/null deleted on a machine once and
the ensuing fun was really spectacular :-).

Doing "whatever > /dev/null" wasn't too bad, but when
someone said "whatever < /dev/null" amazingly random things
could happen.

The point is, it is not MY scripts doing this!  I have had
this bugger for quite some time on F9 and it does not
go away!  Grr.  I just deleted it every time rkhunter
reports it.  Probably just ignore the darn thing....
