Access rights to user's dot files and folders are not restricted ::: Solution?
Greetings, I'm trying to figure out what the solution for the finding Access rights to user's dot files and folders are not restricted
is this specific scan looking for dot files in the root of user's home directories that are not owned by that user and have chmod of 600?
I couldn't find any scripts for addressing this specific finding and the Description is pretty vague.
In Linux OS, any file or folder that starts with a dot character (for example, /home/user/.config), commonly called a dot file or dotfile. The access rights for dot files and folders within every user's home directory must be restricted, otherwise it may enable malicious users to steal or modify other user's data. Therefore, it's recommended to restrict only owners to have full permission, groups to have no write permission, others to have no write permission to dot files and folders.
