If you look at a freshly installed system (and did not use the sysinst
configure menu to enable additional stuff) you will see
- NO network facing services enabled by default
(this is why sshd is off)
- there are some security audit scripts running every night
- a few housekeeping jobs are done depending on their importance
(or expected freqency of changes): newsyslog hourly, calendar daily,
a few others weekly, like man page index, locate database
All this is tunable.
This all assumes a machine that is always running which is bad in a world
of notebooks that get powered down or suspended over night. It works pretty
well for servers.
