The remote telnet server may be vulnerable to a buffer overflow
The Telnet server does not return an expected number of replies when
it receives a long sequence of 'Are You There' commands. This
probably means it overflows one of its internal buffers and crashes.
This could likely lead to arbitrary code execution.
Disable the telnet service by, for example, commenting out the
'telnet' line in /etc/inetd.conf.
