The remote telnet server is affected by a remote buffer overflow
The remote telnet server appears to be Microsoft's telnet server. It
is possible to crash the remote service when it receives too many
options, probably because of a buffer overflow.
An attacker may use this flaw to deny service to legitimate users, or
execute arbitrary code on the remote host subject to the privileges of
the telnet service.
