1) This is true
2) You do not have protection of this port over outsiders
3) You are running this as a user with permission
Then you may likely have a file "/tmp/MADISON" on your system now.
If this is okay with you, fine.
If you run it as root, then it would be easy to erase your password file.
If one of the above is not true, then you should have added that
to your recommendation when you suggested using netcat - no reason
to suggest things to people that will get them in trouble.
