testing owner files and integrity
last night i did a chown -R nobody. / as root.
i tried to establish the right owner of all files, so i start to check
how to do that under debian ( i remembered it was possible under rh) and....
so i started to manually changin owner of my files ( with the help of another
machine debian too).
it would be good for dpkg packages to have a list of all permission and owner
of every file you are installing so it's easier to check this kind of mistakes
( also it can be helpful to detect trojan horse ) .
i mean something like aide but implemented on the structure of .deb packages,
would help sysadm to keep the system as debian suggest.
obviously there are some problems about "customization": e.g. someone wants
tcpdump suid root to permit all his user to watch traffic, so it must be
something which can be suppressed (not like on rh ) but the default configuration should keep the owner/permission as debian suggest .
what do you think about it ?
