I'm currently upgrading some firewalls following the 5 advisories we
received on the 23rd.
One of these firewalls shows, for no reason that I can fathom, the
Id Refs Address Size Name
1 26 0xffffffff80100000 8361c0 kernel
2 1 0xffffffff80a12000 4f9b if_lagg.ko
3 1 0xffffffff80a17000 5e99 umass.ko
4 1 0xffffffff80a1d000 42b27 cam.ko
5 1 0xffffffff80a60000 22f1 ums.ko
Now, I'm wondering why in the world a server would need umass, ums and cam ?
My understanding is that ums is the USB mouse, which we're never going
Umass would be USB mass storage, which again we're never going to need.
Regarding CAM I have absolutely no idea why the module is loaded either.
Are there any ways of finding what programs, if any, require or use said
