 Rooting Out Corrupted Code

Security Focus takes a look at Known Goods.

"Recently, the Shmoo Group put together Known Goods, an Internet-accessible list of file hashes for various operating systems. MD5 and SHA-1 checksums are available for each file on 26 different Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, and Solaris versions. If you're not sure that your system integrity is intact, you can just go and validate your file checksums against those at Known Goods."
