Projects / sXid


sXid is an all-in-one suid/sgid monitoring program designed to be run from cron on a regular basis. It tracks any changes in your s[ug]id files and folders. If there are any new ones, ones that aren't set any more, or they have changed bits or other modes, it reports the changes in an easy to read format via email or on the command line.
