Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 2181
virtual hosts is undocumented default binding address
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:49 EDT
I had problems on site, I traced it to the inetd binary. I
examined the source in netkit-base-0.11+ and
found an undocumented field in the configuration scan of
/etc/inetd.conf which if empty binds INADDR_ANY as the
address of the directed service.
gosh, I guess that means that if tftp is enabled for any
address on a machine, then it is enable to all aliased
address on a machine.
Is this just an undocumented feature?

this represents a major security back door into every
RH machine, does it not?
This was the OpenBSD version of inetd that has been reverted
