LOG FILES of Interest

Most error and debugging messages are logged by the syslogd and klogd daemons. General system logging is done by syslogd. Kernel activity logging is done by klogd. What gets logged is controlled by information in /etc/syslog.conf. Not all versions and vendors of Linux or Unix create the same log files, or store them in the same location. As Security gets tighter, expect more changes. Unix log files are typically in /var/log. Most log files reside in the /etc/log directory. Red Hat includes a desktop Systems Logs window (System Tools -> System Logs) that you can use to search system log files. Log files that are usually located in the /var/etc directory: boot.log - System services start and stop messages boot.msg - Alternate name for the boot.log file cron.log - Contains status messages from crond dmesg - Kernel startup log maillog - Mail log messages - if not logged elsewhere, log messages usually go to the messages file mysqld.log - MySQL Server Log rpmpkgs - Installed RPM packages secure - Security log - records login attempts and sessions spooler - News log - messages from the Usenet News server, if its running up2date - Messages from actions by the Red Hat Update Agent utmp - The utmp file allows one to discover information about who is currently using the system. There may be more users currently using the system, because not all programs use utmp logging. xferlog - FTP log wtmp - The wtmp log file logs all instances of superuser login XFree86.0.log - includes messages from the XFree86 server.

LogSentry checks log files that were produced by the standard Linux syslog facility, and either filters out or filters in log messages based on type(s) selected by the Admin. LogSentry is not part of the normal distribution, and must be downloaded and installed. LogSentry sends a daily email to the root user on the local host computer, containing the specified, filtered log messages. Hmm - other documentation states that LogSentry runs hourly. Anyway LogSentry (there are different versions of this utility),installs the script logsentry.cron in the /etc/cron.d directory. /etc/cron.d/logsentry.cron simply invokes /usr/sbin/logcheck.sh script (at least in LogSentry-1.1.1-i686.rpm). Cisco has acquired Psionic, the maker of LogSentry, but (earlier) versions are available to the public. Sentry Tools software has been released to the open source community following the acquisition of Psionic Technologies by Cisco Systems in 2002.

Linux File Permissions

Linux / Unix File/Folder permissions are fairly easy to understand. All files (and Folders) have an owner - the User who created the File (or Folder). All Users belong to some Group, even if it is a default group. All files and folders in Linux (and Unix) have three types of permissions: r = Read permission x = Execute permission w = Write permission All files and folders in Linux (and Unix) have three types of users: 1] Owner of the file (or Folder) 2] Group 3] Other users File (or Folder) access permissions can be obtained by using the ls command. For example, "ls -alF", provides a list similar to: ------ Owner Permissions (characters 1 through 3) | | | | | | | | | | | | ------ permissions for Other (those in neither Owner nor Group) | | | | | | (characters 7 through 9) | | | | | | | | | | | | vvv vvv drwxrwxrwx Owner Group Filename ... 0123456789 - rwxrx- r - - Owner Group Filename ... ^ ^^^ | | | | | --------- Group permissions (characters 4 through 6) | -- Directory (can be used for Link (l) or a Regular file (-). NOT a permissions bit. Note that if the parent Folder denies you permission to do Write, for example, you can not create files in thatr Folder. The chmod command is set to set or change permissions. Be careful with permissions. If Folder A allows all users to have Write access, but File X, in Folder A denies a user access to write (update, overwrite) that File, the user can use the "chmod" command to change the User's file access permissions to include the ability to write (overwrite/update) that file. Also note that if the Folder gives you write permission, but the File blocks your write permission, you can move or rename the file, substituting a malware or virus file. DO NOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN TO YOU chmod tutorial Every file or folder in Linux has access permissions Getting to grips with Linux Permissions - PDF Understanding Linux file permissions Linux: File: Permission: Set Linux Permissions - zzee.com linux permissions [Archive] - The Cellar Unix/Linux permissions how many possible file permission combinations are there?
