I'm pretty sure it means you have rkhunter installed.

hehe good answer, but it is that application that makes it promiscuous?

Are you running anything that would have the interface open in promiscuous mode? i.e. snort, tcpdump, wireshark, some network monitoring/statistics app?

Promiscous mode just means your network card can 'listen in,' you are worried about nothing.
