'nabou' monitors changes to files and directories on your system using MD5 checksums. It can also watch crontabs, suid files, and user accounts for changes. It stores all data in standard dbm databases. 'nabou' is highly configurable; you can exclude files from being checked, configure which file attributes it should look for, use custom checks, and more.
