SunOS 4.1.4 fingerd

Just messing around I picked up a couple "logic flaws" with sun 4.1.4
fingerd. This may happen on 4.1.X, but I haven't tested, and I am not
motivated enough to check :>

I know I have seen it written up someplace about the flaw when
finger 0 () XXX com is done. (It shows a finger output on every user, which
as we know, can be a very useful tool to those with bad intentions)

Thus, we just added a user 0 (zero). Problem fixed.

Anyway, I have found that fingering . () XXX com also yeilds the same result.

I am willing to bet that many know of this, but I thought I would go
ahead and throw it out there for those who haven't heard about these...
