md5 tracker

OK, Ive began a md5 file tracker, its a basic shell script that runs through "/" by default md5suming every file in its wake and storing them in the db which defaults to /etc/md5.db.

Basic usage:

[root@pc-agr root]# pacsec
Usage: pacsec [-f /path/to/md5.db] [-p /path/to/check/from] [-g|-c]
[root@pc-agr root]#

you can simply run:

pacsec -g

to generate the db, and to use that same db to check the fs do:

pacsec -c

more advanced options are i.e.

pacsec -f /mnt/floppy/md5.db -p /home/ody -g

would generate a md5.db of my home dir and stick it on a floppy for me (aslong as its mounted offcourse)

hrmm thats it for now.. theres more u can do with it that just that, but Ill let you figure it out for now.. please send any suggestions, flames, hugs etc.. my way.

oh u can get the shell script from: http://www.netrux.com/pacsec

peace!

Re: md5 tracker

Thats wont work.. because:

     for file in `find $path -type f`
      do

will run though each part of the file name with spaces thinking its a different field to pull back.. is there any way of telling the for loop to just pull lines?
