Failed Login Check

This Check scans the secure.log file, failing where the number of failed to authenticate user messages in the previous 24 hours exceeds the threshold value.

Where a Check is added or edited the new settings are downloaded to the Agent the next time it communicates back to the Dashboard and applied when the Check runs after that.

The Failed Login Check was previously known as the Hacker Check with this renamed in Dashboard v5.44.5 to more accurately reflect the Check's function.
