Severity: 3-Major


Log file permissions for one specific log file are incorrectly set. This is relevant in reference to an issue with CCE-26812-8, CCE-26821-9, and CCE-27190-8 syslog-ng configuration/permissions. This requests that the file permissions for all log files be of the same level.


Because only Administrators have advanced shell access, and so are on the only ones who can see the log files, there is very little impact.


Viewing log files.



Fix Information

/var/log/catalina.out permissions changed to be more secure.
