DTAVSEL-200 - The McAfee VirusScan Enterprise for Linux 1.9.x/2.0.x must scan all media used for system maintenance prior to use.


Removable media such as CD/DVDs allow a path for malware to be introduced to a Linux System. It is imperative to protect Linux systems from malware introduced from removable media by ensuring they are scanned before use.

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


Create procedures, or add to existing system administration procedures, which require the scanning of all media used for system maintenance before media is used.
