Re: INTERIM DECISION: ACCEPT 5 SA category candidates (Final 9/28)



I agree with Spaf that it's possible for finger to not be an
exposure, but his argument is not convinving that there aren't cases
for which running finger is an exposure.  In addition, running a
modified version of the services is not relevant to this vote, since
we are voting on the regular version.  All 4 requirements mentioned
by Spaf are a likely scenario.  In addition, finger and co. may be
useful to hide from admins (e.g., logoff when they login).  So, even
if a system has no vulnerabilities to be exploited, those services
may be considered an exposure because they could help attackers evade
detection -- assuming someone wants to know who tries to attack.
