Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 23201
/usr/sbin/jserver starting by default again!!
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:59 EDT
Full install of everything, RH7.1 BETA1
Upon reboot, "jserver" starts running :-(
It does not look like a particularly secure piece of software. Last time I
at it I found a remote root bug.
Furthermore, jserver runs with real uid root (effective uid "wnn"). Why on
does it need root. This just makes any security holes catastrophic.
We can really do without jserver as a default listen. Didn't we go through
in the RH7.0 beta? Ditto for "canna" :)
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release
The Canna and FreeWnn packages are now installed if and only if the user selects
"support Japanese" in the installer. The default for this is off when running
the installer in a language other than Japanese.
It won't even be installed with an Everything install unless you select to
support Japanese in the installer explicitly.
BETA 3: English: Everything install: No Canna or FreeWnn listens.
