Ensure the MCS Translation Service (mcstrans) is not installed (Scored)

Level 2 - Server 
Level 2 - Workstation

The mcstransd daemon provides category label information to client processes requesting information. The label translations are defined in /etc/selinux/targeted/setrans.conf

Since this service is not used very often, remove it to reduce the amount of potentially vulnerable code running on the system.

Run the following command and verify mcstrans is not installed:

# rpm -q mcstrans 
package mcstrans is not installed

Run the following command to uninstall mcstrans:

# yum remove mcstrans
