in.ttysnoopd not updating utmp on exit ?

Post by Brock Norve » Fri, 26 Jan 1996 04:00:00

Has any one had this experience and come up with a solution ? Currently,
we have the snooping telnet installed for helping some new users out, and
when they exit thier telnet session, the utmp entry only gets removed once
in a great while. Not a major concern, but rather annoying if one is using
who or finger..

1. xterm not updating utmp on exit


        my xterm/color_xterm are SUID root.  When I leave X and run
`finger` or `who` or aything, I still see a crap-load of people "logged
in" on ttyp ports.  They're not there, of course.  What's causing this,
and how can I fix it?  Thanks,

BTW, here is the ls -la output...
-rwsr-xr-x   1 root     bin        145276 Jun 11  1995 /usr/X11/bin/color_xterm*
-rwsr-xr-x   1 root     root       134412 Jul 23  1995 /usr/X11/bin/xterm*
