OK, you are wrong.
More usefully, you are wrong for the following reasons.
Cops examines the sytem configuration and reports problems. These
problems include such things as
users with world (or group) writable directories
System files which are world (or group) writable
Critical system files which are writable
Versions of files which are older than known patches to fix problems
