ProShield is a security program for Debian Linux.




ProShield is a security program for Debian Linux. Regular use is recommended.

Here are some key features of "ProShield":

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.

What's New in This Release:

A slight improvement was made to the packet sniffer scan, so it shouldn't complain about DHCP daemons.
