Vulnerability discussion

Failure to a known secure state helps prevent a loss of confidentiality, integrity, or availability in the event of a failure of the information system or a component of the system.When an application is deployed to the application server, if the deployment process does not complete properly and without errors, there is the potential that some application files may not be deployed or may be corrupted and an application error may occur during runtime.The application server must be able to perform complete application deployments. A partial deployment can leave the server in an inconsistent state. Application servers may provide a transaction rollback function to address this issue.

Check content

Obtain the site configuration control policy from the ISSO. Review site procedures to determine if a site policy exists to verify vROps installation after release into a production environment. The site policy should ensure that the installation was a complete application deployment before users are allowed to conduct business. If a site policy does not exist or is not being followed, this is a finding.

Fix text

Develop a site configuration control policy to ensure deployments are completed before allowing users to use the production environment.

Pro Tips

Lavender hyperlinks in small type off to the right (of CSS class id, if you view the page source) point to globally unique URIs for each document and item. Copy the link location and paste anywhere you need to talk unambiguously about these things.

You can obtain data about documents and items in other formats. Simply provide an HTTP header Accept: text/turtle or Accept: application/rdf+xml.
