The remote finger daemon has an information disclosure vulnerability.
The remote finger daemon (possibly 'fkey') allows users to read
arbitrary files by supplying a file name that is 10 characters
or shorter. A remote attacker could exploit this to read sensitive
information, which could be used to mount further attacks.
