email Alert


I want a script that will scan the file /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and the folder /etc/httpd/libexec/

-bash-2.05b# grep mod_r /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
LoadModule rewrite_module libexec/
AddModule mod_rewrite.c

-bash-2.05b# find /etc/httpd/libexec/ -name mod_r*

If the scan finds malicious entry like

mod_rphp or mod_root in httpd.conf

it will email an alert to a particular email.

-bash-2.05b# grep mod_r /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf | grep -v mod_rewrite

If the scan finds malicious files in the folder /etc/httpd/libexec/ like or mod_rootme

-bash-2.05b# find /etc/httpd/libexec/ -name mod_r* | grep -v

it will email an alert to a particular email.

Please advise.

format is basically..


entry exists
email alert


file exists
email alert

Do a search on this site, there are plenty of examples of people sending emails using scripts.
