A new software project has spawned a new site
I have been using my own home brew security auditing tools for a couple of years now. This was because my site was hacked and then periodically modified by my web-host. In trying to recover the situation it was apparent there are no useful tools for the small site owner to use and very few that are useful for hosted websites.
My original solution was written in python my favorite language. Deciding that I wanted to make the tool available to the non-technical user and to be available to as manay people as possible I decided to re-write and enhance it using PHP. I'm calling this software Simple Site Integrity Monitor or SSIM.
The purpose of SSIM is to monitor all the directories of a website looking for changes in the content nad then report them automaitically to me as they occur or very soon after. SSIM does the following:
- Detects new or deleted files
- New or deleted directories
- file size and permission changes
- Makes a difference report for editable files.
- Automatically sends emails
