Ensure mounting of hfs filesystems is disabled (Scored)

Level 1 - Server 
Level 1 - Workstation

The hfs filesystem type is a hierarchical filesystem that allows you to mount Mac OS filesystems.

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 hfs 
install /bin/true 
# lsmod | grep hfs 
<No output>

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

install hfs /bin/true
