Fix Recommendation

Change the group-ownership of the audit log file(s).

Procedure:
# chgrp root <audit log file>

# chgrp root /var/log/audit/audit.log

Check Contents

Verify that the system audit logs are group-owned by "root":

# (audit_log_file=$(grep "^log_file" /etc/audit/auditd.conf|sed s/^[^\/]*//) && if [ -f "${audit_log_file}" ] ; then printf "Log(s) found in "${audit_log_file%/*}":\n"; ls -l ${audit_log_file%/*}; else printf "audit log file(s) not found\n"; fi)

If any audit log file is not group-owned by "root" or "admin", this is a finding.
