Debian ProShield

Ein nützliches Sicherheitspaket für Debian basierende Betriebssysteme:

Some of the main features of ProShield include:

  • Helps you backup your system weekly.
  • Checks for extra root accounts.
  • Checks account & password files for correct permissions.
  • Makes sure a few security-hazardous packages are not installed.
  • Checks for a packet sniffer.
  • Removes unneeded packages from the local package archive.
  • Checks for new software releases, in order to see if installed software is reasonably up to date. Smart-suggestion to upgrade if an important package is released.
  • Checks to see if 'apt' is fetching unnecessary information when checking for software updates.
  • Makes sure system time is accurate.
  • Checks to make sure the user isn't logged into the system (GUI) as root.
  • Checks the configuration of the ssh server ([sshd] if installed) for insecure settings.
  • At runtime, ProShield will also check to see if there has been a new version released, and can download and install it at the user's preference.
