The system I originally reviewed was a Proliant running version
4.3 of Cyberguard for SCO. The software bundle that the administrators
of the firewall received from Cyberguard appears to be very similar
to what the Knightstar appliance uses. Both strive to be 'B2' compliant,
both feature rapid installation, etc.

Subject: Cyberguard FW Silliness
| Hey guys,
| Not an extremely huge issue, however one I think worth noting.
| Cyberguard claims that their FW software runs atop 'hardened'
| versions of SCO/Unixware (comes bundled w/ the FW package).
| However, on a default installation of
| the latest version of the Cyberguard FW on SCO, there are a number
| of silly permissions on various critical files/directories:
| drw-rw-rw- /etc/security/firewall/cm
| drw-rw-rw- /etc/security/firewall/cm-defaults
| -rw-rw-rw- /etc/.device.tab.lock
| drwxrwxrw- /etc/conf/pack.d/ktrc
| -rw-rw-rw- /etc/iaf/cr1/.kmpipe
| -rw-rw-rw- /etc/scsi/dtab.out
| -rw-rw-rw- /etc/wsinit.err
| -rw-rw-rw- /usr/X/lib/fs/fs-errors
| -rwxrwxrwx /usr/X/desktop/Help_Desk
| -rw-rw-rw- /var/adm/log/routes
| -rw-rw-rw- /var/adm/log/qhap.log
| -rw-rw-rw- /var/adm/sa/*
| -rw-rw-rw- /var/adm/spellhist
| -rw-rw-rw- /var/adm/unixtsa.log
| drwxrwxrwx /var/sadm/dist
| drwxrwxrwx /var/content/*
| -rw-rw-rw- /var/audit/1018_list
| -rw-rw-rw- /dev/X/xfont.7000
| -rw-rw-rw- /tmp/.scopty
| -rw-rw-rw- /opt/QUALha/dev/ifs/*
| Of course, the obvious symlink/race conditions apply w/ the temp files
| listed above.
| When Cyberguard was notified that their 'hardened' OS is not quite
| as 'hardened' as originally thought, they stated that we would be
| performing the configuration changes at our own risk and will
| discontinue our support due to our 'custom', 'uncertified'
| FW installation. However, they would glady
| send out a consultant at a cost of $15,000 to audit and certify our
| 'custom' configuration. HEH!
