[need help] rkhunter warning: hidden file /usr/share/man/man5/.k5login.5.gz & .k5identity.5.gz

Iā€™m a very new newbie. Apologies and please correct me if I post to the wrong place. rkhunter gives these warnings:
Warning: Hidden file found: /usr/share/man/man5/.k5identity.5.gz: gzip
compressed data, max compression, from Unix, truncated
Warning: Hidden file found: /usr/share/man/man5/.k5login.5.gz: gzip com
pressed data, max compression, from Unix, truncated

Am I infected? If so, what to do besides reinstall? Thanks very much in advance.

Linux 5.8.6-1-MANJARO x86_64 20.1 Mikah (GNU)

These files are OK, no reason to worry. They are owned by krb5 package, the Kerberos network authentication system.

But you should install another kernel, 5.10 or 5.4 for example, 5.8 is no longer maintained. :wink:
After installing another kernel, boot into it and remove kernel 5.8.
