File Integrity Scanner For Your Website
A file integrity scanner is something you need to have. Imagine a
hacker placing a backdoor on your web site, or changing your order form

notifies you within, at most, 24 hours of when any file was changed,
added, or removed. It also helps establish an audit trail in the event
your site is compromised. These instructions are designed for an
