Fix Recommendation

Run the following command to determine which package owns the file:

# rpm -qf <filename>

Reset the user and group ownership of files within a package with the following command:

#rpm --setugids <packagename>


Reset the permissions of files within a package with the following command:

#rpm --setperms <packagename>

Check Contents

Verify the file permissions, ownership, and group membership of system files and commands match the vendor values.

Check the default file permissions, ownership, and group membership of system files and commands with the following command:

# for i in `rpm -Va | egrep -i '^\.[M|U|G|.]{8}' | cut -d " " -f4,5`;do for j in `rpm -qf $i`;do rpm -ql $j --dump | cut -d " " -f1,5,6,7 | grep $i;done;done

/var/log/gdm 040755 root root
/etc/audisp/audisp-remote.conf 0100640 root root
/usr/bin/passwd 0104755 root root

For each file returned, verify the current permissions, ownership, and group membership:
# ls -la <filename>

-rw-------. 1 root root 133 Jan 11 13:25 /etc/audisp/audisp-remote.conf

If the file is more permissive than the default permissions, this is a finding.

If the file is not owned by the default owner and is not documented with the Information System Security Officer (ISSO), this is a finding.

If the file is not a member of the default group and is not documented with the Information System Security Officer (ISSO), this is a finding.
