[Mac] How to Disable Remote Apple Events

[Mac] How to Disable Remote Apple Events

By Centrify Advisor III on ‎10-28-2016 04:21 PM

Remote Apple Events enables your Mac to accept Apple events from apps running on other computers. An Apple event is a task being performed on a Mac, such as “open this document” or “print.” With remote Apple events turned on, an AppleScript program running on another Mac can interact with your Mac. Disabling remote Apple Events is recommended for hardening your Macs from network attacks and a requirement for the CIS (Center for Internet Security) benchmark.


Step 1: Configure the follow group policy setting and set to Disabled: Computer Configuration > Policies > Centrify Settings > Mac OS X Settings > Services > Enable remote Apple events

Once the setting is configured, the policy will take effect at the next group policy interval.
