If only you had run an integrity verification program like osiris or Tripwire first you could have figured out what programs had been changed. In an effort to help out in the instances when you can't answer the question "what was this like before?" we've constructed a searchable database of MD5 and SHA-1 hashes for files in many standard operating systems. You can search using the filename or the checksum and see if you have a trojaned binary or an overactive imagination. Currently at knowngoods.org we have many FreeBSD, OS X, Linux, and Solaris installations checksummed and cataloged. If you have other programs or distributions you would like to see in the database, please let us know."
We can found no scientific discipline, nor a healthy profession on the
technical mistakes of the Department of Defense and IBM.
