Hi,

as you know tripwire is running and I've aded those few script files, to run that get-iptables , chkrootkit, systemstatus


The problem is

that under root
/root/.mc/tree
Inode number 843888 ---changed to----> 843905

/root/.mc/cedit/cooledit.macros [the file size is zero ]

[I was using midnight commander to do the stuff]

Is this normal that these things change ? or should I be worried?


Sincerely
Robert B

oh and btw... what is /dev/shm ? [it's 124MB in size]

things inside the /root directory change all the time ... I don't look in there, only at the executable and library paths like:

/boot
/bin
/usr/bin
/usr/local/bin
/sbin
/usr/sbin
/usr/local/sbin
/lib
/usr/lib
/var/lib
/etc/rc.d

and the like...
-----------------
/dev/shm is this

Actually, on the firewall machine with on GUI stuff, the /root won't change that often, so you could include it in the files looked at...

but anytime you use programs like wget, mc, links, ssh, sftp, etc. it will update the .xxxx directories/files in /root ...then you need to update the database to make it the default setting.
