|Alert Message||Windows audit failure event|
This is a composite rule, 10 events in 240 seconds, indicating multiple generic windows audit failure events.
What you should do
This means something is wrong with the auditing system on the effected Windows system. This could be caused by a lack of disk space, a misconfiguration of the auditing services or a system level problem on the host that is prevening the auditing system from working correctly. The effected system should be checked to ensure it has adequate drive space, is configured correctly and is otherwise operating correctly. The system should also be checked to ensure it has the latest updates from Microsoft installed.
For some regulatory frameworks, a failure of the auditing system to work correctly may require the system to be shut down or taken out of service until the auditing system is working correctly.
There are no false positives with this rule.
There is no guidance for tuning this rule, this is a generic Windows error and the rule should not be disabled.
