Ignore ABEND0C1 for SVC 145(EQA00SVC) while using z/OS Authorized Code Scanner

Troubleshooting


Problem

Running the z/OS Authorized Code Scanner (zACS) will result in an ABENDS0C1 for SVC 145. 

Symptom

*** POTENTIAL VULNERABILITY FOUND IN SVC 00000091 ***

Cause

zACS invokes the IBM z/OS Debugger hook SVC (EQA00SVC) without a debugging session.

Environment

IBM z/OS Authorized Code Scanner

Diagnosing The Problem

Running the z/OS Authorized Code Scanner will result in an ABENDS0C1 for SVC 145.  This is the IBM z/OS Debugger hook SVC (EQA00SVC) and is designed to abend if it detects a hook that it did not place. The CVSS score reported by zACS does not apply to this case.

Resolving The Problem

This zACS report does not represent a vulnerability and should be ignored.
