Endian Firewall is an all-in-on Linux security distribution that turns any system into a full-featured security appliance. It features a stateful packet inspection firewall, application-level proxies for various protocols (HTTP, POP3, SMTP), anti-virus support, virus and spam filtering for email traffic (POP and SMTP), content filtering of Web traffic, and a “hassle free” VPN system based on OpenVPN.
Release Notes: Minor bugs were fixed. ClamAV was updated to the most recent version, ensuring that signature updates will continue to work. Anti-spyware lists are now being provided by PhishTank instead of Malware Domains. This has resulted in *more sites being recognized correctly, and also makes it possible to show an information page with a link to PhishTank’s description of the malicious Web site. Support for various hardware devices was added, including USB modems, network interface cards, and hard disk controllers.

check raid is a script that uses OEM tools to check the status of RAID arrays. It can be used standalone or with snmpd. It currently works with Adaptec (arcconf), 3ware (tw_cli), zfs (zpool), and md (mdadm).
Release Notes: As of 0.54 (svn revision 54) checkraid no longer prints the number of errors. Instead, the output is Nagios/Icinga-compatible (OK, WARNING, CRITICAL, UNKNOWN + exit code).
The regexes have been (hopefully) improved to cover more statuses and to distinguish between non-critital and critical states.
When in verbose mode, only relevant (regex matching) lines are shown.
All WARN, CRIT, and UNKNOWN matches are also logged to syslog.
There’s been a syntax change: the controller/cli is selected by ‘-c’, e.g.
checkraid -c adaptec.
