  • Since this plugin feed update, many of our machines are being inundated with:

    AlienVault HIDS: FIM: Windows file access with the right to write file attributes. (DS 7006/EVE 12020)
    AlienVault HIDS: FIM: Windows file access with the right to read file data (or list directory). (DS 7006/ EVE 12014)

    How can we prevent or or at least limit these new messages and prevent future updates from overwhelming the SIEM?
  • Hi thanks for the comment!
    You could just disable alienvault-windows-FIM_rules or edit it and set to level 0 those noisy events, will not generate alarm and hence events.
    If the issue persist we could create a tickets and try to find a better solution.
