1.2.1 Ensure package manager repositories are configured

Information

Systems need to have package manager repositories configured to ensure they receive the latest patches and updates.

Rationale:

If a system's package repositories are misconfigured important patches may not be identified or a rogue repository could introduce compromised software.

NOTE: Nessus has provided the target output to assist in reviewing the benchmark to ensure target compliance.

Solution

Configure your package manager repositories according to site policy.
