FreeBSD : XFree86 opens a chooserFd TCP socket even when DisplayManager.requestPort is 0 (ff00f2ce-c54c-11d8-b708-00061bc2ad93)

High Nessus Plugin ID 38133


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


When the IPv6 code was added to xdm a critical test to disable xdmcp was accidentally removed. This caused xdm to create the chooser socket regardless if DisplayManager.requestPort was disabled in xdm-config or not.


Update the affected package.
