This is the documentation for Wazuh 3.9. Check out the docs for the latest version of Wazuh!

Update ruleset

Run the update_ruleset script to update the Wazuh ruleset. You should not need to make any other changes to accommodate the updated rules.

Usage examples

Update Decoders, Rules and Rootchecks:

# /var/ossec/bin/update_ruleset

All script options are available on the reference manual.

Configure weekly updates

Run update_ruleset weekly and keep your Wazuh Ruleset installation up to date by adding a crontab job to your system.

One way to do this would be to run sudo crontab -e and, at the end of the file, add the following line

@weekly root cd /var/ossec/bin && ./update_ruleset -r
