A new stable release (3.2.1) for the Tiger security tool has been published.  This new release includes a number of bug fixes, enhancements and new checks such as:  check_ndd (for HPUX and SunOS systems), check_passwspec (for Linux and HPUX) check_trusted (for HPUX), check_rootkit (which can interact with the chkrootkit tool), check_xinetd, and, finally, aide_run and integrit_run which provide new checks for integrity file checkers. Other security checks have been enhanced or

Other relevant changes include: full integration with TARA 3.0.3, improved HPUX support, preliminary MacOSX support, new functions for safer file creation and removal, and more documentation (such as an annotated version of CERT's Unix Security Checklist). For the full list of changes please read the 'CHANGES' file in the source code.

This release has been possible thanks to the contributions made by Tiger users.  A new contrib/ directory has been created in the sources to cover those patches provided by the community which have not yet made it to the main tree but which will be integrated in the near future.

I would specially like to thank Ryan Bradetich and Nicolas François, who have provided invaluable feedback and enhancements in the form of patches.
