Mageia briefly displayed a security message balloon in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. Something about a change in security settings was detected. It disappeared after a few seconds. How to see it again?

You can re-read, when clicking the little arrow (upwards) to the left of your clock (bottom-right), and choose for "Notifications".

The latest security-check-log can be checked through:
MageiaControlCentre->Security->Configure system security...->Show results

I'm using Xfwm4, and my lock is at the top, and looks different. I do not see a little arrow next to it. Thanks for the info about seeing the results. However, that does not seem to have the message which flashed earlier.

isadora, I am not sure why you reposted your quote, when I had already addressed it above, unless it was a way of saying that you don't like people using the quote function.

I reposted part of my quote, due to let you know specifically, to find back (MSEC) security-logs in Mageia Control Centre, amongst others.

The message that appeared in your "Notifications"-applet was/is:
MSEC has performed Security Check on localhost.localdomain on Dec 26 08:24:02. Detailed results are available in /var/log/security/mail.daily.today
MSEC has performed Diff Check on localhost.localdomain on Dec 26 08:24:02. Changes in system security were detected and are available in /var/log/security.log.
