InformationThe eXtended InterNET Daemon (xinetd) is an open source super daemon that replaced the original inetd daemon. The xinetd daemon listens for well known services and dispatches the appropriate daemon to properly respond to service requests.
If there are no xinetd services required, it is recommended that the package be removed.
SolutionRun the following commands to remove xinetd:
# apt purge xinetd
Additional methods of disabling a service exist. Consult your distribution documentation for appropriate methods.
