Fix Recommendation

If the "autofs" service is not needed to dynamically mount NFS filesystems or removable media, disable the service for all runlevels:

# chkconfig --level 0123456 autofs off

Stop the service if it is already running:

# service autofs stop

Check Contents

To verify the "autofs" service is disabled, run the following command:

chkconfig --list autofs

If properly configured, the output should be the following:

autofs 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:off 6:off

Verify the "autofs" service is not running:

# service autofs status

If the autofs service is enabled or running, this is a finding.
