Emergency administrator accounts are privileged accounts which are established in response to crisis situations where the need for rapid account activation is required. Therefore, emergency account activation may bypass normal account authorization processes. If these accounts are automatically disabled, system maintenance during emergencies may not be possible, thus adversely affecting system ava ...

The sudo command must be configured to prompt for the administrator user's password at least once in each newly opened Terminal window or remote login session, as this prevents a malicious user from taking advantage of an unlocked computer or an abandoned login session to bypass the normal password prompt requirement. Without the tty_tickets option, all open local and remote login sessions would b ...

When operating system accounts are disabled, user accessibility is affected. The system must audit account disablement actions so that administrator users can detect and respond to such events. Such a capability greatly reduces the risk that operating system accessibility will be negatively affected for extended periods of time and provides logging that can be used for forensic purposes. To addres ...

If temporary user accounts remain active when no longer needed or for an excessive period, these accounts may be targeted by attackers to gain unauthorized access. To mitigate this risk, automated termination of all temporary accounts must be set upon account creation. Temporary accounts are established as part of normal account activation procedures when there is a need for short-term accounts wi ...

Bluetooth Sharing must be disabled. Bluetooth sharing allows users to wirelessly transmit files between Mac OS X and Bluetooth-enabled devices, including personally owned cell phones and tablets. A malicious user might introduce viruses or malware onto the system or extract sensitive files. Disabling Bluetooth Sharing mitigates this risk.

The Bluetooth kernel extension must be removed, as wireless access introduces unnecessary security risks. Removing Bluetooth support entirely mitigates this risk and ensures the operating system enforces this requirement.

When automatic logins are enabled, the default user account is automatically logged in at boot time without prompting the user for a password. Even if the screen is later locked, a malicious user would be able to reboot the computer in order to log in. Disabling automatic logins mitigates this risk.

Automatic actions must be disabled for video DVDs. Applications should not be configured to launch automatically when a disk is inserted. This potentially circumvents anti virus software and allows malicious users to craft disks that can exploit user applications. Disabling Automatic Actions for video DVDs mitigates this risk.

Automatic actions must be disabled for picture CDs. Applications should not be configured to launch automatically when a disk is inserted. This potentially circumvents anti virus software and allows malicious users to craft disks that can exploit user applications. Disabling Automatic Actions for picture CDs mitigates this risk.

Automatic actions must be disabled for music CDs. Applications should not be configured to launch automatically when a disk is inserted. This potentially circumvents anti virus software and allows malicious users to craft disks that can exploit user applications. Disabling Automatic Actions for music CDs mitigates this risk.
