    Hi

    Anyone know how to configure a CCS check for UNIX to execute 'find' command?

    Like for example 'find all files under user home path with execute (x) permissions.

    The predefined checks in CCS are non-editable and viewable.

    Hi, you can try to export out the pre-defined standard, then edit the xml accordingly, if can work then that's luck. If can not, then no other choice.

    Thank you.

    Hi patriot3w, thanks for the reply. We have done some recycling of the pre-defined standard checks. To some degree we had luck. But for some situations we need to run a specific 'find' command parameters. We are seeing a lot of corporate hardening documents for unix systems specifying a 'find' command as the verification/listing command in terms of file/folder permissions, setuid/setguid, etc... It would be nice if there is a way to use find command in CCS checks with total flexibility.
