It filters ads by stripping HTML from the page, anonymizes requests by removing Referer and User-Agent headers, compresses HTML content, and de-animates animated gifs. Configuration is done via Web-based forms or editing a Perl data structure.

FileTraq is a shell script designed to be run periodically from the root crontab. Each time, it compares a list of system files with the copies that it keeps. Any changes are reported in diff or patchfile style, and dated backup copies are kept. It lets you keep an eye on intruders who might change system files, or other sysadmins who don't tell you about changes. It even helps you keep track of your own changes, along with dated backups.
FileScanner is a Perl script which searches through directory trees and compares text file contents to a list of specified words and phrases. FileScanner outputs HTML-based reports which include statistics and clickable links to the pages it has found. Virtual hosts support for hosted domains is included.
