Doing a security audit of linux system

I just discovered lynis which can be done on the local system-it’s a simple script which can be run on the shell without any installation.

Get it from https://cisofy.com/lynis/

wget https://cisofy.com/files/lynis-2.4.8.tar.gz
tar xvf lynis-2.4.8.tar.gz
cd lynis
./lynis audit system

The final log is saved to /var/log/lynis.log
