| Using Windows Explorer, search the system for the existence of known compilers such as msc.exe, msvc.exe, Python.exe, javac.exe, Lcc-win32.exe, or equivalent. Look in all hard drives. |
Also, query the SA and the Web Manager to determine if a compiler is present on the server.
Query the SA and the Web Manager to determine if a compiler is present on the server. If a compiler is present, this is a finding.
NOTE: When Apache is part of a suite install, e.g. application server, and a compiler is needed for installation and patching of the product, document the installation of the compiler with the ISSO/ISSM and verify that the compiler is restricted to administrative users only. If documented and restricted to administrative users, this is not a finding.
