Where to find the newest version of COPS or similar security checking tools?

Hola,

The best two archives for tools are:

ftp://coast.cs.purdue.edu/pub/tools/unix

AND

ftp://ftp.cert.org/pub/*

Coast mirrors CERT and many other places.

Hi all,

I've search a while in the net and can only find a COPS of 1994.
Where can I find a newer version? Is there anything (preferably free)
in the net that I can use to scrutize UNIX system/network security
settings ?

Regards,

S S

1. COPS security check on AIX 3.2.3 is scary

I just ran the COPS 1.04 system security checker, and it reported the
following scary problems, which must be the default with AIX 3.2.3
(and many other AIX versions, I guess):

Warning!  /etc/cfgodm.ipl is _World_ writable!
Warning!  /etc/locks is _World_ writable!
Warning!  /etc/settings is _World_ writable!
Warning!  /usr/adm/ras is _World_ writable!
Warning!  /usr/lib/cfgodm.ipl is _World_ writable!
Warning!  /usr/lib/ras is _World_ writable!

Does anyone have authoritative information on whether I (and all the rest
of you) can safely remove the world-write permissions on these files ?
