ML - I saw that chapter in your book but was concerned that patching could
cause issues if a binary changed.  Great book btw!

> Usage:
> Set the directories you want to target at the top of $sudodigest.pl.
> # cd /etc/sudoers.d
> # sudodigest.pl > 00-digests
> # ids-sudoers.pl > 01-wheel
> # visudo -cf /etc/sudoers
> This creates platform-unique aliases for each command, and an
> EVERYTHING alias that includes all those aliases. There's also rules
> to let wheel and sudo groups run everything. But you can cut those out
> and do aliases like:
> Cmnd_Alias NOSHELL = EVERYTHING, !/bin/sh, !/bin/bash, !/bin/su
> %wheel ALL=NOSHELL
> EVERYTHING is an explicit list of programs in system directories, so
> it doesn't include user-created /tmp/sh.
> So: if you need sudo IDS, is this reasonable?
