It is possible to connect to this host as 'root' without a password.
The remote /bin/login seems to be affected by a 'forced root login'
vulnerability. By attempting to connet via rlogin and forcing it to
use the root account (rlogin -froot), any attacker may use this flaw
to gain remote root access on this system.
Upgrade your /bin/login, or comment out the 'rlogin' line in
/etc/inetd.conf and restart the inetd process
