Fix Recommendation

Modify the "/etc/rsyslog.conf" file to remove the "ModLoad imtcp", "ModLoad imudp", and "ModLoad imrelp" configuration lines, or document the system as being used for log aggregation.

Check Contents

Verify that the system is not accepting "rsyslog" messages from other systems unless it is documented as a log aggregation server.

Check the configuration of "rsyslog" with the following command:

# grep imtcp /etc/rsyslog.conf
$ModLoad imtcp
# grep imudp /etc/rsyslog.conf
$ModLoad imudp
# grep imrelp /etc/rsyslog.conf
$ModLoad imrelp

If any of the above modules are being loaded in the "/etc/rsyslog.conf" file, ask to see the documentation for the system being used for log aggregation.

If the documentation does not exist, or does not specify the server as a log aggregation system, this is a finding.
