HackOff – a program to report on suspicious files on your webserver

HackOff has been written in and it’s a simple program that searches for suspicious files like global.asa, *.asp and *.php files.
You upload it into your root directory and it will search the main folder and all sub folders for any offending files.
It reports back to you on screen, plus it emails a report to you.  It tells you the folder, the filename and the last change date of the file.
It can be set up as a scheduled program to run each week, allowing you to quickly discover if you’ve been hacked and do something about it.
Don’t wait till it’s too late and don’t think that your website isn’t important enough to be hacked.  It can happen to anyone!  So it’s better to be prepared.
Just as you run an anti virus program on your computer, so you should run some sort of checking program on your webserver.
