GEN002753 - The audit system must be configured to audit account termination - 'User audit class assignments should be reviewed'


If the system is not configured to audit certain activities and write them to an audit log, it is more difficult to detect and track system compromises and damages incurred during a system compromise.
NOTE: Nessus has not performed this check. Please review the benchmark to ensure target compliance.


Configure the system to audit account termination.

Edit /etc/security/audit/events and add the USER_Remove event to the list of audited events
