I was looking at my (inetd.conf in order to add a ftp server) and more things were uncommented that I would have expected, some I know what they are, but I cant tell what others are and wether they are a security risk to me.
heres is what i have found:
time stream tcp nowait root internal
time dgram udp wait root internal
ftp stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd proftpd
comsat dgram udp wait root /usr/sbin/tcpd in.comsat
auth stream tcp wait nobody /usr/sbin/in.identd in.identd -P/dev/null
there is plenty more in that file but all the rest is commented out, the only thing that i had a hand in was the ftp server (which is configured rather securely), all the others were there by default, so my question is; what do i need, and whats a security risk to me that I can comment out (I know the FTP is a security risk, but I need that one up)
