Security Scripts

Each BSD installs a set of security scripts that run daily and the results are emailed to the superuser. These scripts check for possible security violations, including

• Checking the password databases for empty passwords and UIDs and GIDs of 0

• Checking for changes to .rhosts

• Checking for changes to SUID and SGID permissions

Details on these checks can be found in security.conf(5) on NetBSD, security(8) on OpenBSD, and periodic.conf(5) on FreeBSD.
