arno-iptables-firewall and checksecurity.  The second of these two once 
installed alerted me to an attack on all of my system's grep binaries.  I 
forced a delete of binaries and purged them from the system's archive then 
downloaded and installed them from the debian web site.  I'm sure that's 
not the only problem happening here, but when this system gets reinstalled 
the passwords are going to be better and those are the first two packages 
that get downloaded and installed once installation finishes.  The 
checksecurity package doesn't need or use X to run and it was something I 
found while looking for something else.
