Fix Recommendation

Edit the local initialization file(s) and remove the relative path entry from the PATH variable.

Check Contents

NOTE: The following must be done in the BASH shell.

Examine the PATH variable contained in any user's local initialization files to ensure the use of only absolute paths, using a command shell that supports the use of ~USER as USER's home directory.

# cat /etc/passwd | cut -f 1,1 -d ":" | xargs -n1 -IUSER sh -c 'grep -i PATH ~USER/.*'

The PATH variable is a colon-delimited directory list.

An empty entry is defined by a leading/trailing colon or two consecutive colons.

A relative path is defined as an entry beginning with a character other than a slash (/).

If an empty or relative path is defined in the PATH variable, this is a finding.
