MS SQL Server Audit Event: 24006

MS SQL Server Auditing Tool

Databases are critical to enterprises because they store confidential data. Hence it becomes important to monitor database logs. But manually auditing them is a herculean task because of the enormous amount of log data generated. ManageEngine's EventLog Analyzer is a comprehensive log management tool that makes it easy for you to monitor all database activities, audit user accesses, track database server account changes, and ensure integrity of confidential data stored, especially in your MS SQL server database.

24006: Change password succeeded

Event 24006 occurs when a user successfully changes another user's SQL server login password. This event mostly occurs when a privileged user (administrator) tries to change the password of other users. Action groups consist of all the relevant events together, making it easy for an administrator to identify an event's type just by looking at its action group. This event is generated by the LOGIN_CHANGE_PASSWORD_GROUP action group. This event includes important information, like the:

  • Date and time at which the successful password change occurred.
  • Session identifier of the event.
  • Privileged user who performed the action.
  • ID, name, and type of the target object (in this case, the SQL server login).
