basic system security checks

Checksecurity can periodically do some very basic system security checks: . * check-setuid - scans for insecurely mounted remote file systems, and tracks changes in setuid programs; * check-sockets - tracks changes in open ports to detect rogue programs; * check-passwd - scans for empty or duplicate system accounts; * check-disfree - scans for mounted filesystems nearing capacity; * check-iptables-logs - scans logs generated by iptables and look for intrusion attempts. . Be aware that these minimal set of checks are no substitute for a full security auditing and integrity checking system. . In addition to these checks you are encourage to install additional packages (listed in "Recommends") to provide more information concerning the security or vulnerability of your system. . Installing the suggested package lockfile-progs can help to prevent the cron jobs running multiple times if something gets jammed.
