I have create a shell script that helps install things like Root Kit Checker, root breach Detector and Email Warning, MOTD(Message of the Day), APF(Advanced Policy Firewall), BFD(Brute Force Detection), Logwatch, and Nano. This script is still in Beta and I plan to add more options to it. You can download the script here: http://www.customarea.info/downloads/index.php
The shell script is licensed under the GNU General Public License which is included in the download. You can download the file in either .zip or .tgz format.
If you run Plesk 8, it has a new feature called WatchDog, which checks for rootkits etc and also gives you a system report, much similar to the Win2k3 Admin report
Yes but you can also install this rootkit checker too. I don't recall Plesk 8 giving you a report of your log files for the entire server. Logwatch does this. You can read more about Logwatch here: http://www2.logwatch.org:81/
I have added downloads to APF, BFD, Logwatch, and Nano.
There are mirrors setup so you can either download them from my server or directly from the Software Site. If anyone has any comments, questions, suggestions you can email them to me
