Cisco ASA Audit Event: 111003

Cisco ASA Events

The logs of network perimeter devices such as firewalls, antivirus applications and intrusion prevention systems contain crucial information that helps to pre-emptively block security attacks and breaches. Hence, it's mandatory for you to monitor and audit these logs. Because Cisco ASA provides the combined functionality of all the three, it becomes all the more important to monitor its logs. 

ManageEngine's EventLog Analyzer, a comprehensive log management solution, collects and analyzes the log data from Cisco ASA devices, triggers alerts and generate reports on detected security incidents thus helping you to take suitable measures against security threats, if any.

111003: Erase configuration

Cisco ASA is a security device that provides the combined capabilities of a firewall, an antivirus, and an intrusion prevention system. It also facilitates virtual private network (VPN) connections. It helps to detect threats and stop attacks before they spread through the network.

Message: %ASA-5-111003: IP_address Erase configuration.

Event 111003 is generated when the contents of the flash memory are erased by entering the 'write erase' command at the console. The IP_address indicates whether the login was made at the console port or with a Telnet connection.

How could you resolve this situation?

After erasing the configuration, reconfigure the ASA and save the new configuration. Alternatively, you can restore information from a configuration that was previously saved, either on a floppy disk or on a TFTP server elsewhere on the network.

We can help you simplify log management and improve your organization's security with EventLog Analyzer.
