Ensure mounting of udf filesystems is disabled (Scored)

Level 1 - Server 
Level 1 - Workstation

The udf filesystem type is the universal disk format used to implement ISO/IEC 13346 and ECMA-167 specifications. This is an open vendor filesystem type for data storage on a broad range of media. This filesystem type is necessary to support writing DVDs and newer optical disc formats.

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

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

install udf /bin/true
