Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: Users of zSecure Audit exploiting the        *
    *                 software to prepare data for QRadar SIEM.    *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The zSecure Audit QRadar SIEM interface *
    *                      might generate LEEF files that does not *
    *                      contain records of RACF events with a   *
    *                      missing class name.                     *
    ****************************************************************

    ****************************************************************
    When a SMF source being processed by zSecure Audit contains
    RACF event records without a RACF class, the generated LEEF file
    does not contain such records at all.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The zSecure Audit QRadar SIEM interface has been modified so
    that it properly writes LEEF records for SMF events without a
    RACF class name.
