A reader wrote in to inform us that OSSEC version 2.0 has been released. I haven't had a chance to play around with it yet, but I am looking forward to it. It appears there is a bunch of new functionality.
From the OSSEC website...
"* Compiled Rules - Per popular demand, we are introducing the capability in the product to be able to use pre-compiled rules written in “C”. Customers who felt that the XML format for writing rules was very limiting, can now use the strong programming capabilities of C.
For those of you who are not aware of OSSEC it is an open source log analysis tool that runs on Linux and provides file integrity checking, policy monitoring, rootkit detection, real-time alerting and active response.
