Fix Recommendation

At a minimum, the audit system should collect file permission changes for all users and root. Add the following to "/etc/audit/audit.rules":

-a always,exit -F arch=b32 -S removexattr -F auid>=500 -F auid!=4294967295 \
-k perm_mod
-a always,exit -F arch=b32 -S removexattr -F auid=0 -k perm_mod

If the system is 64-bit, then also add the following:

-a always,exit -F arch=b64 -S removexattr -F auid>=500 -F auid!=4294967295 \
-k perm_mod
-a always,exit -F arch=b64 -S removexattr -F auid=0 -k perm_mod

Check Contents

To determine if the system is configured to audit calls to the "removexattr" system call, run the following command:

$ sudo grep -w "removexattr" /etc/audit/audit.rules

-a always,exit -F arch=b32 -S removexattr -F auid>=500 -F auid!=4294967295 \
-k perm_mod
-a always,exit -F arch=b32 -S removexattr -F auid=0 -k perm_mod
-a always,exit -F arch=b64 -S removexattr -F auid>=500 -F auid!=4294967295 \
-k perm_mod
-a always,exit -F arch=b64 -S removexattr -F auid=0 -k perm_mod

If the system is 64-bit and does not return a rule for both "b32" and "b64" architectures, this is a finding.

If the system is not configured to audit the "removexattr" system call, this is a finding.
