#19051 closed defect (invalid)

what are the specific security exposures of rpcd?

I see that rpcd includes a login/password combination in plain text.

It is a required component of luci-base for some reason.

What does this tool do, why is it needed, and what are it's possible security risks?

It is a service providing ubus methods via a local unix domain socket. It is not reachable via TCP or UDP and manges the login sessions for LuCI. For further details use the forum or mailing lists, this is a bug tracker.
