Description Chris Evans 2000-06-27 18:59:15 EDT
Did a full install of BETA2, and rebooted.
A process called "cannaserver" was running as root, and listening on a TCP
socket :-(
This is obviously very dangerous.
I fully expect to find specific security issues with "cannaserver". I'll
update the bug tomorrow if I get time to take a look.
Comment 1 Chris Evans 2000-07-08 18:55:46 EDT
Hmm - well, I haven't yet had the time to look at "cannaserver"
However, surprise surprise, Canna just got a few mentions on bugtraq for a
remotely exploitable problem (Debian have issued a security update).
Looks like "cannaserver" is as big a potential security disaster as "jserver"
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2000-07-15 14:24:22 EDT
It is no longer running as default, and is set up only to listen locally
by default as of 3.5b2-19.
Comment 3 Chris Evans 2000-07-17 19:35:08 EDT
Nice one. Note that #13133 is similar but more serious.
