How about this:

"A version of finger is running that releases valid user information
to any entity on the network."

This avoids TCP-wrappered finger and the basic modifications that Spaf
was talking about.  I'd prefer not to have a description identify all
the types of scenarios where it might not be an exposure, as I've
tried to keep descriptions as short as possible.  On the other hand,
dot notation may be useful for identifying the various flavors of
finger within this single entry.
