This policy setting allows you to audit events generated by other user account changes that are not covered in this category, such as the following:
The password hash of a user account was accessed. This typically happens during an Active Directory Management Tool password migration.
The Password Policy Checking API was called. Calls to this function can be part of an attack when a malicious application tests the policy to reduce the number of attempts during a password dictionary attack.
Changes to the Default Domain Group Policy under the following Group Policy paths:
Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Account Policies\Password Policy
Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Account Policies\Account Lockout Policy
Note: The security audit event is logged when the policy setting is applied. It does not occur at the time when the settings are modified.
Default: No Auditing.
