Re: SSHD on non-privileged port : security risks ?
Well, that's kind of a silly question. It's like saying 'I wear a seatbelt: is
that a risk?"
You've enabled a service over which people can log in and transfer files,
depending on your ocnfiguraiton. Are they people you trust to behave sensibly?
Or will they run havoc with every privilege than can scrape up and try to
cause destruction? Can you actually trust them to keep their passwords away
from other people? Is your sshd daemon up-to-date and properly configured?
And why are you asking *now*? Do you need to use it for something? SSH, for
example, is a huge security improvement over rsh and telnet and FTP.
