randomizing execution of some cron entries
the subject looks probably weird. well i'd like to do following:
the time of the exec should be random (1-15 mins). while i think 15 mins is a nice interval for logcheck it affects system security if an attacker knows that EXACTLY every 15 mins a logcheck is performed. that is why i want to exec logcheck every 15 mins at the latest!
the only way i can think of solving this is to create a wrapper script which is executed every minute.
anybody has some ideas ? :-)
