Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 509370
Default aide.conf incorrect.
Last modified: 2009-08-19 17:51:29 EDT
Description of problem:
Supplied Configration File does not monitor only "admin dot files for PERMS"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Exists in 0.13.1-7.fc11
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install aide.
2. Run aide -i
3. move the db in place.
4. run aide -C, note everything is fine.
5. change the mtime on a non dot file in /root.
6. run aide -C, note the mtime change is not reported.
mtime change on normal file in /root not reported.
mtine change on normal file in /root IS reported
The problem lies in the last rule in the configuration file.
it is curretnly
however since aide treats the lines a regular expressions, not globs, this matches all files in /root.
Fixes the problem.
A new aide package has been built in rawhide to address this issue. Thanks for reporting it.
