EP11-00-003800 - Unused database components, EDB Postgres Advanced Server software, and database objects must be removed.


Information systems are capable of providing a wide variety of functions and services. Some of the functions and services, provided by default, may not be necessary to support essential organizational operations (e.g., key missions, functions).

It is detrimental for software products to provide, or install by default, functionality exceeding requirements or mission objectives.

DBMSs must adhere to the principles of least functionality by providing only essential capabilities.

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


Open Control Program >> Programs >> Programs and Features. Select any programs that should not be installed, click 'uninstall', and then follow the prompts to uninstall the software.
