Disable the Finger Service The finger service has had several security vulnerabilities in the past and is not a necessary service. It is disabled by default; enabling it would increase the attack surface of the system.


Parameter: enabled/disabled


Technical Mechanism: To check if the finger service has been disabled, run the following command: sudo /usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c 'print com.apple.fingerd:Disabled' /var/db/launchd.db/com.apple.launchd/overrides.plist If the returned value isn't 'true' or doesn't exist, this is a finding.
