Audit information includes all information (e.g., audit records, audit settings, audit reports) needed to successfully audit operating system activity.

Unauthorized disclosure of audit records can reveal system and configuration data to attackers, thus compromising its confidentiality.


At the command line, run the following command:

# chown root:root <audit log file>

Replace <audit log file> with the log files not owned by root.
