3.8.8 ChecksumUpdates

ChecksumUpdates = ( on )

This variable defaults to `off'. If set to true, cfagent will automatically update the checksum of a file, if it changes on the disk. This means that a security warning will be issued only once about files which have changed, and the changed version will be re-registered as the correct version. This option could be switched on after a system upgrade, for instance, in order to update the database, and then switched to `off' again to reduce the risk of missing a security alert. Alternatively, if you are confident that the first message is sufficient, it can be left as `on' so that only one message is given.
