WN12-00-000009-01 - Members of the Backup Operators group must be documented.

Information

Backup Operators are able to read and write to any file in the system, regardless of the rights assigned to it. Backup and restore rights permit users to circumvent the file access restrictions present on NTFS disk drives for backup and restore purposes. Visibility of members of the Backup Operators group must be maintained.

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

Solution

Create the necessary documentation that identifies the members of the Backup Operators group.
