    Hi list,

    I'm currently reviewing a Check point/Nokia box and a Secure Platform
    manager. The settings in Voyager are all good, and likewise the Web
    GUI of the SPLAT manager is fine, they're both patched and the policy
    is also clean - but I want to ensure the o/s themselves are ok. I've
    checked that there aren't any users there shouldn't be in /etc/passwd,
    checked there aren't any unknown processes (at least any visible
    ones), any unusual open ports or any strange scripts scheduled to run
    in crontab. The firewall logs themselves aren't showing anything

    I am concerned that a previous administrator may have left himself
    access by the back-door somehow - but am not in a position to rebuild
    them to be sure. What else would you lot check for?
