MADB-10-007500 - MariaDB must provide an immediate real-time alert to appropriate support staff of all audit failure events requiring real-time alerts.


It is critical for the appropriate personnel to be aware if a system is at risk of failing to process audit logs as required. Without a real-time alert, security personnel may be unaware of an impending failure of the audit capability, and system operation may be adversely affected.

The appropriate support staff include, at a minimum, the ISSO and the DBA/SA.

Alerts provide organizations with urgent messages. Real-time alerts provide these messages immediately (i.e., the time from event detection to alert occurs in seconds or less).

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


Configure the system to provide an immediate real-time alert to appropriate support staff when a specified audit failure occurs.

It is possible to create scripts or implement third-party tools to enable real-time alerting for audit failures in MariaDB.
