Hmmm... that argument would have to be the other way around to make sense....
Anyway, like I said, any machine running NIS should probably be kept as
far away from any public network as possible....

I really can't imagine what you're afraid of -- such a feature can only

it won't even know it's there since they'll have to override whatever it
might do in any case.
