The remote server is vulnerable to a denial of service.
The remote host has a bug in its 'inetd' server. 'inetd' is the
'internet super-server' and is in charge of managing multiple
sub-servers (like telnet, ftp, chargen, and more).
There is a bug in the inetd server that comes with RedHat 6.2, which
allows an attacker to prevent it from working completely by forcing it
to consume system resources.
Upgrade to inetd-0.16-7.
