This task examines system files and compares each file with a description of that file as it is listed in a master file. The master file is created the first time ASET runs this task. The master file contains the system file settings that are enforced by checklist for the specified security level.
A list of directories whose files are to be checked is defined for each security level. You can use the default list, or you can modify it, specifying different directories for each level.
For each file, the following criteria are checked:
Owner and group
Size and checksum
Number of links
Last modification time
