Is Xserver bring security problem to Linux server
I am an Oracle DBA. I have had an argument with our Linux system admin. I want him to turn on Xserver on Linux server so that I can use Xwindowns to display Oracle DBCA on my desktop to create a new oracle database. However, he told me that turning Xserver on will cause security vulnerability to the Linux server. I don't understand how could this happen? Xserver is a component of Linux system. if it could cause these problem, why does Linux integrate this program into its system. I don't think this is correct description. Can you, experts or guru, put your comments here to let me learn from you? Thanks.
