Internet Browser: Basic authentication for RSS feeds over HTTP must not be used

a140d78e-249b-4c39-9d82-f54aeef02be0

Basic authentication uses plain-text passwords that could be used to compromise a system. Disabling Basic authentication will reduce this potential.

Remediation

If this needs to be corrected, configure the policy value for Computer Configuration >> Administrative Templates >> Windows Components >> RSS Feeds >> "Turn on Basic feed authentication over HTTP" to "Not Configured" or "Disabled".
