i found telnetd.core in / directory of public access machine that works
stable for few months.

in logs i found lots (every few seconds) messages like
telnetd[9872]: ttloop:  peer died: No such file or directory

and lots of messages from inetd about connection to telnetd from many
different hosts.

is telnetd exploitable??! any protection?
