    DS 9.1.5.11 - No '.' or Group/World-Writable Directory In Root's $PATH

      Hello People,

       

       

      I am trying to use the below compliance content on Red Hat Linux server
      checking for "." and "w" bit for group and world
      permissions on directories part of the PATH variable; however, every time I
      change the permissions on /bin for example which is part of the PATH variable,
      the below check does not report "non-compliant" alert. In addition,
      the "BL=LXO Group World Writable Directory" extended object is not
      clear to me as it does check for "yes" as a value1 string. My
      question would be; how to make this rule non-compliant and it would it report
      the impacted directory on the PATH variable?

      "Extended Object Entry:BL-LXO Group World Writable
      Directory//BMC_RULES/FILE_GROUP_WORLD_WRITABLE/Compliant"."Value1 as
      String (All OS)" = "Yes"
