An emptytree-seedy system consists of daemons that use a TCP network to exchange messages. These messages are signed with a shared password. Access to the user account running the system is conceivably reduced to access to this shared password. This password could be used to send messages to the daemons which could compromise the account.
If you are behind a firewall on a trusted network this might not bother you. If not you can set your system operation to untrusted mode. In this mode the Service daemon will not start any other daemons and will not write a configuration file. This however only makes compromising the user account harder not impossible.
USAGE: $0 [options] Where options are: no options would start a Gtk --boot Start and configure all things marked 'boot' in the config file for this host, if no config file exists only Thing::Service will be started. --start=<name> Start and configure the thing configured with <name>. --type=<type> Start a thing of type <type>. --kill Shutdown all things. --pwd Create or update the password file. --upgrade Upgrade the configuration file. --install_config=<file> Install a configuration file into the appropriate working directory for this host. --[no]trusted Sets operation to trusted mode. Trusted mode is inherently insecure but simpler to configure. Default is untrusted i.e. --notrusted. --service_port=<xxxx> Modify the default service port. --[no]interact Allow user prompting. Default is --interact. --[no]quiet Only display error messages. --trace=<0-6> Turn on copious debugging, for --start and --type options this will be passed to the started thing and trace information will appear on the stdout.
