Test Solidcore on Linux with added #include bad-actors to the sudoers

Jump to solution

I'm running a test protocol to make sure Solidcore "McAfee Application and Change Control" works properly in our environment.

I was given to add  #include bad-actors to the sudoers and that Solidcore should stop that.

Am I correct or is there a better test or set of tests to make sure Solidcore is working properly?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My test was:

Add #include /etc/bad-actor to the /etc/sudoers file with the visudo command.

Kindly Advise,

Darin

Hi DarinL

Thanks for posting details in our community.

Based on the provided query, #include bad-actors to the sudoers will be blocked from execution unless or until there is any specific white listing done to this or if this path is added to skip list.

Or if Solidcore is placed in observe mode, then this will be executed. 

Our best practice would be to place the endpoints in observe mode and mange requests accordingly.

The details are available in the product guide below.

I request you to refer to the section "Using Application Control in Observe Mode".

This gives you a brief idea on what needs to done and how you can have control over the applications.
