Description of problem:
A big security hole was recently discovered in telnetd.  I can't tell if my
telnet is vulnerable.  The RPM I used was telnet-server-0.17-10.  I don't
know if it's vulnerable because RedHat didn't release an advisory.  the
0.17 matches non-vulnerable netkit versions in number, but I can't find any
information as to whether or not this telnetd is netikit.  Thanks.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.I don't know if there is a problem, but if you find the source code on
BugTraq for the vulnerability checker, you get a hit.
2. Be unsure--this checker is known to produce wrong results on some
3.Lather, rinse, repeat...
