Cfingerd 1.4.3

Cfingerd is a configurable finger daemon.
Cfingerd is a configurable finger daemon.

Cfingerd is a free and secure finger daemon replacement for standard finger daemons such as GNU fingerd or MIT fingerd. It can enable/disable finger service to individual users, rather than to all users on a given host. Cfingerd is able to respond to a finger request to a specified user by running a shell script (e.g., finger doorbell@mysite.mydomain might cause a sound file to be sent) rather than just a plain text file.

Here are some key features of "Cfingerd":

Highly configurable
Distinction between local (trusted) and remote hosts
Run scripts through files as nobody or as user
Parse user files for variables and commands
Hide users
Search for strings in the passwd file
Open user files as user (thus work with NFS)
Log finger actions in user's logfiles
Reject hosts according to config file
Support fake users, run scripts for certain accounts
Support for banner/footer
Freely configurable response strings

What's New in This Release:

Security update, fixes buffer overflows introduced with sscanf(), exploitable under FreeBSD.
