Saschas Backtrace: System-Helper Lynis

The Group how has maked „Rootkit Hunter“, has released a new Systemtool. Now the Linux Community has a new Security and System Auditing  Tool called „Lynis“.

Lynis is a Shell-Program, that uses Chkconfig, Readlink, Stat and Strigs. The Download is very easy, the RPM-Package is available in OpenSUSE-Build Service.

After installation you can use it with: # lynis-c (as root). Then the Program checks your System. Here is a screenshot:

If you would like to start lynis regularly you can edit your crontab:

# crontab -e
# 16 6 * * * root /usr/bin/lynis -c –cronjob

You can see the Testresults on the fly in the screen, or you can read the full Report in /var/log/lynis-report.dat .
The Config lays in /etc/lynis/lynis.prf, so you can edit this to your wishes. And the Manpage are to be read with: # lynis –man .

The actually Version of this Program is stable and runs very good.
