The whitehats ruleset has not been maintained for a long time. If you 
examine the files you will see just how long it has been (some time in 2000 
if I recall correctly)

Until the author of that ruleset is released from prison and resumes 
maintenance of the ruleset do not use it. Fortunately he's supposed to be 
released in mid October, but until that time comes, the ruleset is dead and 
only exists for academic interest purposes.
