Fix Recommendation

Change the primary group GID numbers for non-system accounts with reserved primary group GIDs (those less or equal to 99 in general, or 499 for Linux).

Check Contents

# more /etc/passwd

Confirm all accounts with a GID of 99 and below (499 and below for Linux) are used by a system account.

If a GID reserved for system accounts, 0 - 99 (0 - 499 for Linux), is used by a non-system account, this is a finding.
