Fix Recommendation

Remove the "-a task,never" rule from the /etc/audit/rules.d/audit.rules file.

The audit daemon must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

# sudo systemctl restart auditd.service

Check Contents

Verify syscall auditing has not been disabled:

# auditctl -l | grep -i "a task,never"

If any results are returned, this is a finding.

Verify the default rule "-a task,never" is not statically defined :

# grep -v "^#" /etc/audit/rules.d/* | grep -i "a task,never"

If any results are returned, this is a finding.
