FreeBSD 4.1.1 Finger Arbitrary File Access



The remote host may give an attacker information useful for future attacks


The remote finger server allows anyone to read arbitrary files on this host, by requesting the file name on port 79. An attacker may use this flaw to retrieve your password file or any file readable by the fingerd process.


Disable the finger service.
