[McIDAS #TXX-128658]: security mcidas



Hi Tyn,

re:

I assume that you mean that you are in the process of opening up access
to an ADDE server for public access.  True?

There are no known security breaches related to access to a remote ADDE
server ** as long as the server is NOT run as 'root' **.  The good news
about how the ADDE server works is that connections will "fall on the floor"
(die/drop) if a request is received that is not valid.

Other than the above, I am not sure what else you might be looking for, but
I am willing to respond to any specific questions you might have.


Cheers,

Tom
