VCWN-06-000028 - Log files must be cleaned up after failed installations of the vCenter Server.
In certain cases, if the vCenter installation fails, a log file (with a name of the form 'hs_err_pidXXXX') is created that contains the database password in plain text. An attacker who breaks into the vCenter Server could potentially steal this password and access the vCenter Database. NOTE: Nessus has not performed this check. Please review the benchmark to ensure target compliance.
Develop a site policy for handling failed installation cleanup of the Windows host prior to deployment. Using the Windows host search function, determine the existence of any log files of format 'hs_err_pid' and remove them.
