Yes, I can run logwatch on mine..but in all honesty..I shut down whatever ports on my server that I dont want accessible, then in IPFilter I tell it explicitly what I want coming in and what can go out.  There really isnt anything that I consider important on there, network is seperate from my personal network etc.  Other than that, unless there is a Apache, Drupal flaw or Piwigo (my photo gallery), I should be good to go.

Man...lots of talk on this subject..hopefully nobody is getting tired of seeing this.  LOL
