While perusing the latest Nevada build notes, I came across the following PSARC case:
PSARC case 2004/368 : Secure By Default BUG/RFE:4875624 *syslogd* turn off UDP listener by default BUG/RFE:5004374 Ship with remote services disabled by default BUG/RFE:5016956 By default rpcbind should not listen for remote requests BUG/RFE:5016975 By default snmpd/dx should not be enabled. BUG/RFE:5016998 By default inetd should not listen for remote connections. BUG/RFE:5017041 By default sendmail should not listen for remote connections BUG/RFE:5046450 Create a greenline profile for Secure by Default installation BUG/RFE:6267741 RFE: One-touch knob for outbound-only sendmail BUG/RFE:6414308 syslogd could use some lint soap
I have been bitching about the number of services that come enabled by default for the past ten years, and am SUPER excited to see that Sun finally fixed this annoyance! Nice!
