Take a look at Tripwire, it's free for Linux.

It will watch all files on your box and tell you if they change. (ie
someone added/removed/changed something).  It's a great product.

A little off the subject, but I feel it's related to IDS in general so this
could be a helpful group.

Are there any Open or Closed source tools for detecting that intruders have
installed compromised tools, backdoors, etc on a Linux system? I know that
many Virus Scanners can do this for files that are considered in that
category by the developers, but do they really cover the other tools a
Hacker may install on a System?

No, I'm not trying to sanitize a system. I was just thinking that would be
good tool for people who may not have taken the proper safeguards for
detecting binaries changing or files being added.
