MYS8-00-002800 - The MySQL Database Server 8.0 must generate audit records when security objects are modified

Warning! Audit Deprecated

This audit has been deprecated and will be removed in a future update.

View Next Audit Version


Changes in the database objects (tables, views, procedures, functions) that record and control permissions, privileges, and roles granted to users and roles must be tracked. Without an audit trail, unauthorized changes to the security subsystem could go undetected. The database could be severely compromised or rendered inoperative.

NOTE: Nessus has provided the target output to assist in reviewing the benchmark to ensure target compliance.


If currently required, configure the MySQL Database Server to produce audit records when security objects are modified.

See the supplemental file 'MySQL80Audit.sql'.
