SQL6-D0-001100 - SQL Server must limit privileges to change software modules, to include stored procedures, functions, and triggers.


If the system were to allow any user to make changes to software libraries, then those changes might be implemented without undergoing the appropriate testing and approvals that are part of a robust change management process.

Accordingly, only qualified and authorized individuals shall be allowed to obtain access to information system components for purposes of initiating changes, including upgrades and modifications.

Unmanaged changes that occur to the database software libraries or configuration can lead to unauthorized or compromised installations.

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


Revoke the ALTER permission from unauthorized users and roles.

REVOKE ALTER ON [<Object Name>] TO [<Principal Name>]
