Gentoo Auto-Update Scripts
Being a old OpenBSD user, I have grown quite accustom to receiving the daily email outputs from the fantastic /etc/daily, /etc/weekly, and /etc/month cronjobs. Now that I am supporting several Gentoo based servers, I find myself longing for that same system maintenance automation.
To addressed this, I have created a shell script for Gentoo to preform various nightly system administration tasks from a cron job and then email me a report reminiscent of OpenBSD's /etc/daily reports. This script is generic enough to run on all of my Gentoo based boxes. Additionally, since most of the servers I support serve some sort of security function, I've included optional auto-updating for Nikto plugins, Snort signatures, and Nessus plugins.
This script is released AS-IS under the New BSD License and is available from the "Downloads" section of my Google Code page. While I am currently running this script in production environments, it should still be considered Beta. Please feel free to change/add/ improve as you see fit. If anyone would like to contribute, please drop me a comment.
