    Make sure the finger daemon is not running. SkyWolf had it running and finger represents a frigging big security risk. So, if fingerd is running, close it by all means.

    Why?
    Code:
    [vince@vincent: ~]% finger @209.161.239.13  
    [209.161.239.13]
    Login   Name      Tty   Idle Login Time  Office   Office Phone
    ken    Kenneth Chung *pts/1  103d Apr 13 19:13
    ken    Kenneth Chung *pts/2  103d Apr 13 14:33
    root   root      tty1      Apr 14 14:57
    root   root      *pts/3  103d Apr 11 15:57
    [vince@vincent: ~]%
    So now I got a user name to start trying to hack your machine.

    you know all machines will have a username called root.
    But 98% of the time root is denied all network access. So you need to find a normal user (ken) to get in.
