1. Problem Summary

During a recent audit, a number of possible security vulnerabilities
were uncovered.

2. Impact

Exploitation of the conditions discovered during the audit could lead
to a denial of service or remote root compromise.

3. Solution

Update the package from our ftp server by running the following command:

rpm -Uvh ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/security/<rpm>

Where <rpm> is the following:

xinetd-2.3.3-2.i386.rpm

The source RPM can be downloaded here:

ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/SRPMS/xinetd-2.3.3-2.src.rpm

**Note: You must rebuild and install the RPM if you choose to download
and install the SRPM. Simply installing the SRPM alone WILL NOT CLOSE
THE SECURITY HOLE.

Please verify the MD5 checksums of the updates before you install:

MD5 sum Package Name
