[SOLVED] RKhunter: Promiscuous Interface Warning

PVE uses linux (or ovs) bridging for its networking - and bridging usually requires the interfaces to be in promiscuous mode (otherwise the NIC would drop all packets destined for the guests) - so depending on whether your question was related to the interfaces PVE uses for bridging VMs the answer is probably yes

I hope this helps!
