sXid runs as a cronjob. Basically it tracks any changes in your s[ug]id files and folders. If there are any new ones, ones that aren't set any more, or they have changed bits or other modes, then it reports the changes. You can also run this manually for spot checking.

It tracks s[ug]id files by SHA-256 checksums. This helps detect if your files have been tampered with, would not show under normal name and permissions checking. Directories are tracked by inodes.
