Does anyone have an opinion as to whether running xforward or xroute
daemons on a firewall to allow X11 traffic through it is safe or not?
I am concerned that once an X11 connection is established between a
client on the external net and an X11 server on the internal network,
that potentially a program such as Xsteal might be able to snoop data
from *other* windows on the X11 server.
Unfortunately I don't have a copy of Xsteal to test this out. Can
anyone suggest where I might obtain the source? Please feel free to
mail me direct if this is not appropriate for this list.
Many thanks, Mike.
