Description vjg 1999-03-25 00:07:03 UTC
Upon port scanning our linux server for security holes it
responds on port 31337 (back Orifice ) this was a fresh load
no 3rd party software loaded on. there is no entry in
services or inetd.conf for this port.. i could be wrong but
it looks to me like someone have buried a back door into RHL
at some point.. Very disturbing...

This does not happen here for us in our test installation of a 5.2
