Cortex XDR 

Dear all,

 

Does anyone know the log source for action_evtlog_provider_name = "var/log/wtmp"? As I know, wtmp is last log as follow:

However, I find that the result is not only wtmp log but also secure successful log in cortex XDR:

So does anyone know the real log source for "var/log/wtmp" or the mechanism? Thanks a lot!
