Description of problem:
about 1 month ago when I try to connect my linux installed pc using telnet, it 
started to give immediately the following error:

Red Hat Linux release 7.1 (Seawolf)
Kernel 2.4.2-2 on an i686
/dev/tux/backup/login: Bad address 

I tried to solve the problem but I could not find what is wrong so,
I formatted my pc and reinstall RedHat7.1 again. It worked well for a while but 
today when I want to connect by telnet I had same error again. What happened I 
do not know. You may telnet to the address   to see this error
I  also could not login into my account using console screen,
Same lines printed as soon as I press a key to login.

You have been hacked. 
Use ssh instead of telnet. 
Upgrade your packages to the newest security fixes!!
