Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

The following tests are made: aliens, asp, bindshell, lkm, rexedcs, sniffer, wted, z2, amd, basename, biff, chfn, chsh, cron, date, du, dirname, echo, egrep, env, find, fingerd, gpm, grep, hdparm, su, ifconfig, inetd, inetdconf, identd, killall, login, ls, mail, mingetty, netstat, named, passwd, pidof, pop2, pop3, ps, pstree, rpcinfo, rlogind, rshd, slogin, sendmail, sshd, syslogd, tar, tcpd, top, telnetd, timed, traceroute, and write. ifpromisc.c checks whether the interface is in promiscuous mode, chklastlog.c checks for lastlog deletions, chkwtmp.c checks for wtmp deletions, check_wtmpx.c checks for wtmpx deletions (Solaris only), and chkproc.c checks for signs of LKM trojans.
