"Account logon" and "Logon" events are reversed in a Readiness Review question In the Readiness Review Assessment, one of the questions reads: "In a recent network break-in, the intruder logged on as a user with permission to read a set of confidential files. You suspect that the intruder used a brute force approach to discover the user's password. You have implemented a string password policy and required all users to change their passwords. Now you want to institute an audit policy that will let watch for a pattern indicating a brute force attack on domain accounts. Which event category will you audit on the domain controller to gather the necessary information?" The answer that is marked correct reads: "Audit failed logon events." The answer that should be marked correct reads: "Audit failed account logon events." The explanation reads: "A brute force attack is one in which the intruder attempts to "guess" the user's password by systematically trying combinations of letters, numbers, and symbols. To watch for a pattern that indicates a brute force attack, you will want to watch for failed logons at the domain controller. The Logon event occurs when authentication is attempted by a domain controller. Account logon events occur on the local system where the user is logging on, not on the domain controller. Therefore, auditing failed account logon events on the domain controller will not give you the information you need. Account logon events occur on the local system where the user is logging on , not on the domain controller. Therefore, auditing successful account logon events on the domain controller will not give you the information you need. Auditing successful logon events will not give you information about attempts to crack a password. It will also fill the event log very quickly."
