O121-BP-026400 - The /diag subdirectory under the directory assigned to the DIAGNOSTIC_DEST parameter must be protected from unauthorized access.


<DIAGNOSTIC_DEST>/diag indicates the directory where trace, alert, core and incident directories and files are located. The files may contain sensitive data or information that could prove useful to potential attackers.

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


Alter host system permissions to the <DIAGNOSTIC_DEST>/diag directory to the Oracle process and software owner accounts, DBAs, SAs (if required) and developers or other users that may specifically require access for debugging or other purposes.

Authorize and document user access requirements to the directory outside of the Oracle, DBA and SA account list.
