AIX7-00-001037 - The AIX root accounts list of preloaded libraries must be empty.


The library preload list environment variable contains a list of libraries for the dynamic linker to load before loading the libraries required by the binary. If this list contains paths to libraries relative to the current working directory, unintended libraries may be preloaded.

NOTE: Nessus has not performed this check. Please review the benchmark to ensure target compliance.


Edit the 'root' user's initialization files and remove any definition of 'LDR_PRELOAD'.
