When it comes to security, I love to run my computer (Debian Etch) in
'paranoia-mode'. Unfortunately, yesterday I have used 'startx :1' for
several hours, because I wrongly believed that I am not connected to the
internet. Consequently, within this period of time, the 6001 port was
open. My question now concerns the severity of this temporal security
breach. Is there a chance that I have been compromised (just looking at
the big picture)? Is there anything I should do?
In this spirit
With thanks in advance
Yours Gernot
