Just cloned Lynis 2.1.5 from git using oh-my-zsh.  Easy install - Fast - Works great !

Might come in handy, for those of us that horse around with untrusted repos  8)

Really cool. I first came to know Lynis when I was testing Voyager X, which is based upon Xubuntu 14.04.3, and it sure is a useful tool. I added the BackBox repository to keep security packages up to date and I dabbled a bit into security issues on Debian based distros, SELinux, etc. Learned a lot from rkhunter coupled with Lynis. You're right, by the way, if you use many external PPA's, Lynis will help in getting your system secure. You got my applause (karma).
