Decode and compare hex-encoded attribute numbers
aide-attributes HEX_NUMBER [HEX_NUMBER]
aide-attributes decodes hex-encoded attribute numbers to attribute names or displays the differences between two attribute numbers. The script is useful to decode the attribute numbers as shown in the 'Entry X in database has different attributes: OLD_HEX_NUMBER NEW_HEX_NUMBER' message.
Decode the hex number 'c3d' to attribute names:
$ aide-attributes c3d
Display the differences between two hex-encoded attribute numbers:
$ aide-attributes c3d fbd
