As a rule, accounts on a web server are to be kept to a minimum. Only administrators, web managers, developers, auditors, and web authors require accounts on the machine hosting the web server. The resources to which these accounts have access must also be closely monitored and controlled. The vSphere UI files must be adequately protected with correct permissions as applied out of the box.

At the command prompt, execute the following command: # chmod o-w <file> # chown vsphere-ui:root <file> Repeat the command for each file that was returned.
