“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. -- James Westby <email address hidden> Wed, 21 Apr 2010 13:45:42 +0100

- 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.
