Etcd directory ownership is not set to etcd:etcd

Risk Level

Informational (4)

  • N/A


It was found that the etcd directory file's owner is not set to etcd:etcd. Setting the file's owner to a low privileged user allows the modification of the file by this user and expose the configuration file to unwanted modification.
  • Recommended Mitigation

    It is recommended to change the file's owner to 'etcd' to allow the file modification for privileged users only.
