You keep referring to "damage" without giving any details. What sort of
damage is it?

RPM itself offers features that can verify integrity of any or all installed
packages. That way you can learn about files that have been modified and may
need to be reinstalled.

Additionally, you could install and run an intrusion detector like AIDE
that would perform file verification based on its own database files,
which you could also transfer to a place safer than your harddisk.

However, depending on what "damage" you refer to, it may take considerable
effort to repair it. For beginners, it would be more convenient to restore
from backups or reinstall quickly ... and learn about securing the system.
