System start-up files must only execute programs owned by a privileged UID or an application.
System start-up files executing programs owned by other than root (or another privileged user) or an application indicate the system may have been compromised.
Change the ownership of the file executed from system startup scripts to root, bin, sys, or other.
# chown root
Check the ownership of any files executed from system startup scripts. If any of these files are not owned by root, bin, sys, or other, this is a finding.
