Don't get me wrong, I completely agree some things should be set in stone with respect to audits and what have you, but let's consider the facts: a company that's under pressure from whomever enforces SOX but has quite a large volume of cash on hand will generally find a way to alter some logs were they keen on doing so. Even using some sort of feedback loop encryption/hashing method might be circumvented, albeit harder.

Smaller companies won't do it, but the big fish can probably bribe the right people when needed.

Access UNIX System with the demise of "" during the
"Operation Sundevil" raids. Since then it has grown to become the oldest
and largest continually operating PUBNIX on the planet."
