Maybe little know about this embedded Android mobile smart phone features but there is a few mobile code cheats that can help you find out a little bit about your phone security, that's pretty handy for anyone who really wants to know whether mobile phone is being sniffed / tapped on Android software level and can give you an idea on how much your smart phone data is protected or are you being a target of someone's secret surveillance, of course this info is just on Android firmware embedded features level and if your mobile is somehow hacked or trojanned the information that can show could be not adequate, but still it is a good info to know.

How to use find command to find files created on a specific date , Find files with specific size on GNU / Linux

How to use find command to find files created on a specific date on GNU / Linux?

 

The easiest and most readable way but not most efficient ) especially for big hard disks with a lot of files not the best way) to do it is via:

 

find ./ -type f -ls |grep '12 Oct'

 


Example: To find all files modified on the 12th of October, 2017:

find . -type f -newermt 2017-10-12 ! -newermt 2017-10-13

To find all files accessed on the 29th of september, 2008:

$ find . -type f -newerat 2015-09-29 ! -newerat 2015-09-30

Or, files which had their permission changed on the same day:

$ find . -type f -newerct 2015-09-29 ! -newerct 2015-09-30

If you don't change permissions on the file, 'c' would normally correspond to the creation date, though.

 

Another more cryptic way but perhaps more efficient  to find any file modified on October 12th,2017,  would be with below command:

 

find . -type f -mtime $(( ( $(date +%s) – $(date -d '2017-10-12' +%s) ) / 60 / 60 / 24 – 1 ))

 

 

 

You could also look at files between certain dates by creating two files with touch

touch -t 0810010000 /tmp/f-example1
touch -t 0810011000 /tmp/f-example2

This will find all files between the two dates & times of the 2 files /tmp


 

find / -newer /tmp/f-example1 -and -not -newer /tmp/f-exampl2

 


How to Find Files with a certain size on GNU / Linux?

 

Lets say you got cracked and someone uploaded a shell php file of 50296 bytes a , that's a real scenario that just happened to me:

root@pcfreak:/var/www/blog/wp-admin/js# ls -b green.php 
green.php
root@pcfreak:/var/www/blog/wp-admin/js# ls -al green.php 
-rw-r–r– 1 www-data www-data 50296 окт 12 02:27 green.php

root@pcfreak:/home/hipo# find /var/www/ -type f -size 50296c -exec ls {} \;
