Hmmm... xdm is usually considered quite secure, but maybe
this has changed during the development course of X...

As alternatives I'd like to suggest wdm (the WindowMaker
display manager) and slim. Both are easy to setup, work
well with the defaults, and allow customizing if needed.
They also play nice with different window managers and
desktop environments.
