This change adds a default herald to /etc/security/login.cfg.

This change puts into place a suggested login herald to replace the default entry. As the herald is presented to a user prior to logon, it should not provide any information about the operating system or version. Instead, it should detail a company standard acceptable use policy. This herald can be subsequently tailored to reflect a corporate standard policy.


Add a default login herald to /etc/security/login.cfg-

chsec -f /etc/security/login.cfg -s default -a herald='Unauthorized use of this system is prohibited.
