comment SSH E-mail login alert if SSH port is as NAT
@Mato If you are running a tool to snoop the SSH session just have it email on connection, or wrap it and log as in the second case.

comment How do I identify the user that is attempting to create a file?
@Gn13l Try using man -k to find the correct documentation and man to display the document. man grep should display the documentation for grep. The getent database is passwd. man 5 passwd should describe the output.

comment How do I identify the user that is attempting to create a file?
@Gn13l Usually I use the command ps -ef | less and look for the web server process(es). The command will list the userid of the process. You can grep /etc/passwd for the user id to find the UID, or use the getent command to do the lookup.

Execute controls access to files. If you know the name you can read a file with just the execute bit set. I believe the execute bit is required to verify allow access the file, and write to create the directory entry.

comment How to check if NTPD updates Linux machine's time successfully using shell?
@dvc The scripts there don't seem to include the requested functionality. There seems to be some code to generate SNMP traps, but I haven't encountered SNMP to monitor NTP. I've had to do my own monitoring in several large organizations.
