    Gee, I wrote a Perl script called MIVP (Mirror Integrity Validation
    Program) in 1996 that did exactly this.  It compared several
    attributes of each file in the user-configured list to those on a
    remote server or read-only media and if it found any differences,
    restored the modified file and notified the proper people.  
    It also had a range of logging and other security-related functions
    that could be configured by the user.  I offered it (for free) to the
    Air Force after their Web site got defaced (New Years 1997, if my
    memory serves), but they turned it down.  I know at least one other
    person who wrote a similar program in 1997.
    Everything old is new again.
