SQS policy documents should avoid using wildcards
- GG_ID: GG_IAC_0065

Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS) offers a secure, durable, and available hosted queue to integrate and decouple distributed software systems and components.
SQS supports attaching permissions policies to resources. A too permissive policy could grant access to certain undesired resources or actions.
Misconfigured permissions or direct access to storage drives can lead to data leak.
Replace the wildcard
* permissions in the configuration file to grant only the
required ones to perform a task. Start with a minimum set of permissions and grant
additional permissions as necessary.
