Description Valentin Nechayev 2000-10-15 11:20:01 UTC
The bugfeature of identd is known (since 1996): anyone can connect to
production service on host running identd and query owner of remote side
socket. This can be used by bad guy to find objects to attack; i.e. nmap
scanner uses it.

Since this PR was submitted, uipc_socket2.c has been completely refactored. 
However, it seems that the patches were never applied.  Since the assignee 
is inactive, go ahead and reset the assignment and mark it as suspended.
