Previous: X Terminals
Most X terminals allow any user to change the configuration
parameters, including such things as the TCP/IP address, servers
addresses, display manager behavior, and local clients (if any).
A malicious or mistaken user can:
change or erase any parameters,
use an X terminal to masquerade as another host, or
change the parameters to cause the user to
login to an untrusted host.
