msec message/log

Recommended Posts

Hi

I usually get a pop up message from msec saying it has done a security check. Today i noticed a different pop up, to quick to catch properly but mentioned /var/log.

 

I've looked at /var/log/msec.log and found these entries.

Can't find anything similar in a search, any ideas what this means? is there a problem and if there is, what do i do?

 

Thanks

msec is resetting security permissions on files. This is normal. If you don't want this, you can reduce the security level on your system so that it doesn't do it. You probably have it to highest level which is why it's doing it.

Thanks Ian, that's fine as long as i know what's going on. Just getting a bit paranoid these days. "highest level" sounds good to me.
