My Snow Collegue Michael Boelen was invited to write a `little” article for the Insecure Magazine for his tool “Lynis”. I think he did a very nice job at that, I read the article and I found it interesting to read!
What is Lynis?
From the Lynis projectpage:
Lynis is an auditing tool for Unix (specialists). It scans the system and available software, to detect security issues. Beside security related information it will also scan for general system information, installed packages and configuration mistakes.
This software aims in assisting automated auditing, software patch management, vulnerability and malware scanning of Unix based systems. It can be run without prior installation, so inclusion on read only storage is no problem (USB stick, cd/dvd).
