#313 accepted defect

single_instance_start: please bind on UNIX domain socket on systems that support them

Reported by: dam Owned by: ryan52
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Single Instance Version: 0.35
Keywords: Cc: ryan52

Description

The single instance server binds on 127.0.0.1:4444 and then performs some tasks on demand without any authentication.

On multi-user systems this is a security breach. Please use UNIX domain socket (somewhere in user's home directory, protected with appropriate permissions) on systems that support it.

Thanks for considering.

I'll take this ticket on. It looks like wxwidgets has support to do this the right way and this will be easy to do.
