checksecurity 2.0.13ubuntu2 source package in Ubuntu


checksecurity (2.0.13ubuntu2) lucid; urgency=low

  [ Matt Zimmerman ]
  * plugins/check-setuid: Use ionice to set idle I/O scheduling priority for
    find(1) across the whole filesystem.

  [ James Westby ]
  * plugins/check-setuid: Use the -t option to ionice so that failures to set
    I/O priority don't stop the command running.
    - Depend on util-linux (>= 2.15~rc1-1) to ensure the feature is available.
    - Thanks Colin Watson.

checksecurity: basic system security checks

 Checksecurity does some very basic system security checks, such as
 looking for changes in which programs have setuid permissions, and that
 remote filesystems are not allowed to have runnable setuid programs.
 Note that these are not to be considered in any way complete, and
 you should not rely on checksecurity to actually provide any useful
 information concerning the security or vulnerability of your system.
 The lockfile-progs package is only a "Suggests" because of the poor
 way that dselect handles "Recommends", but I do strongly suggest that
 you install it; it prevents /etc/cron.daily/standard from running multiple
 times if something gets jammed.
 Checksecurity was previously part of the cron package.
