and what about tmp file in /dev?

rkhunter report:

   Checking /dev for suspicious files...                      [ OK ]
   Scanning for hidden files...                               [ Warning! ]
---------------
 /dev/.tmp-22-0
/dev/.udev /etc/.pwd.lock
---------------
Please inspect:  /dev/.tmp-22-0 (block special (22/0))
