Fix Recommendation

For any log file that returns an incorrect owner, run the following command:

/usr/bin/sudo chown root [audit log file]

[audit log file] is the full path to the log file in question.

Check Contents

To check the ownership of the audit log files, run the following command:

/usr/bin/sudo ls -le $(/usr/bin/sudo /usr/bin/grep '^dir' /etc/security/audit_control | awk -F: '{print $2}') | grep -v current

The results should show the owner (third column) to be "root".

If they do not, this is a finding.
