1.8 Ensure that 'Notify all admins when other admins reset their password?' is set to 'Yes'


Ensure that all administrators are notified if any other administrator resets their password.


Administrator accounts are sensitive. Any password reset activity notification, when sent to all administrators, ensures that all administrators can passively confirm if such a reset is a common pattern within their group. For example, if all administrators change their password every 30 days, any password reset activity before that may require administrator(s) to evaluate any unusual activity and confirm its origin.

NOTE: Nessus has not performed this check. Please review the benchmark to ensure target compliance.
