Package: kphotoalbum
Version: 4.5-1
Severity: normal

Just got the popup about trying the Android app, which acts as a remote
for the client, and I tried it and it worked... with *no access control*
or even a popup...

lsof confirms that kphotoalbum is just listening on a port:

kphotoalb 29586 eichin   25u  IPv4            1687321      0t0      UDP *:23455 at +9m10s describes how to
turn it off, and there's a tiny button on the bottom of the screen to
turn it off.

I couldn't find a specific reference in the policy guide asserting that
things like this should be closed-by-default, but it just seems

main.cpp has
    options.add("nolisten-network", ki18n( "Don't start listening for android 
devices on startup." ));

which is backwards - and looking a little bit more (and experimenting)
confirms that it doesn't *stay* off, it doesn't save the user's choice
to the config file.

Probably should be a higher severity than "normal" but I haven't
explored quite far enough to confirm that there really is no way to
cleanly leave it off.  It's a very nice feature, it's just not in any
way safe to have turned on by default...
