Ensure mounting of freevxfs filesystems is disabled (Scored)

Level 1 - Server 
Level 1 - Workstation

The freevxfs filesystem type is a free version of the Veritas type filesystem. This is the primary filesystem type for HP-UX operating systems.

Removing support for unneeded filesystem types reduces the local attack surface of the server. If this filesystem type is not needed, disable it.

Run the following commands and verify the output is as indicated:

# modprobe -n -v freevxfs
install /bin/true 
# lsmod | grep freevxfs 
<No output>

Edit or create the file /etc/modprobe.d/CIS.conf and add the following line:

install freevxfs /bin/true
