Severity: Standard
Applicable for: Wind River Linux 7
Component/s: Userspace


For security reason, the system must limit users to 10 simultaneous system logins, or a site-defined number, in accordance with operational requirements.
This is required by STIG here:

In oe-core/meta/recipes-extended/pam/, /etc/security/limits.conf is not defined as CONFFILES of package libpam-runtime,  even after user change the definition to limit 10 logins,  it will be overwrite after upgrade this rpm package.
