Re: Is _your_ Netscape under remote control

Obviously, the *temporary solution* as stated on Netscape's page is to
disable client access via xhost, however it bugs me that Netscape can be
controlled remotely. This ''feature'' by Netscap seems utterly pointless,
since to have a web server control your netscape you would have to disable
security (xhost +) or manually add the site to the access control list,
assuming that the site is ''safe''.
