	The default periodic.conf value for "daily_status_security_diff_flags"
	includes the "-u" flag, which doesn't produce output with lines
	prefixed with '>' which is what the grep pipeline checks for.
	This means that the daily security report doesn't include firewall
	denied log changes.
	Run: "periodic security" after some changes to the firewall log

	Remove the '-u' option to 'daily_status_security_diff_flags' in
