Fingerd

http://www.weird.com/~woods/projects/fingerd.html
A safer replacement for any 'fingerd'

This is a much updated version of Mike Shanzer's fingerd-1.3. It is almost completely rewritten, well-debugged (i.e., more secure), and quite configurable. It supports ACLs, a message-of-the-day file, the ability to run programs for given user-IDs, and a full set of command-line options that make it mostly compatible with modern BSD versions. It is portable, uses GNU Autoconf and GNU Automake for builds, and it comes with a ready-to-use BSD makefile too.
