Fix Recommendation

Set the mode of the local initialization files to "0740" with the following command:

Note: The example will be for the smithj user, who has a home directory of "/home/smithj".

# chmod 0740 /home/smithj/.<INIT_FILE>

Check Contents

Verify that all local initialization files have a mode of "0740" or less permissive.

Check the mode on all local initialization files with the following command:

Note: The example will be for the smithj user, who has a home directory of "/home/smithj".

# ls -al /home/smithj/.* | more
-rwxr-xr-x 1 smithj users 896 Mar 10 2011 .profile
-rwxr-xr-x 1 smithj users 497 Jan 6 2007 .login
-rwxr-xr-x 1 smithj users 886 Jan 6 2007 .something

If any local initialization files have a mode more permissive than "0740", this is a finding.
