Attackers often attempt to access or even alter audit trails in order to remove all traces of their malicious actions. Making sure that only the right individuals have access to audit logs is important to make sure it doesn't happen. Section 10.3 also specifies that user ID, type of event, timestamp, status, origination and entity names must be included with audit log access log records.

This Action1 query lists all audit log access rights for all managed endpoints and flags those that don't have audit log security settings configured properly.

Sign-up for Action1 Free Edition to install/uninstall software and patches, receive real-time alerts and view instant data from your endpoints, or run live or scheduled queries with the ability to export to CSV or Excel. Action1 Endpoint Security Platform is entirely SaaS, with online web interface (no management tools to install) and it has zero cost for basic functionality. Running in the Cloud, Action1 discovers all of your endpoints in seconds and you can query your entire network in plain English.
