    flaw: gain root remotly

    rlogin -froot
    this old flaw has recently gained new popularity. It's a high risk, cause root can be taken remotly, therefor, make sure /bin/login isn't vulnerable to the known bug, rlogin -froot
    You need to upgrade your /bin/login or if you want to be sure, you can comment out the rlogin line in your /etc/inetd.conf

    More info about the rlogin at: http://www.sei.cmu.edu/publications/...7abstract.html

    Thanks for the heads up VictorKaum. Some computers on my network weren't configured correctly for this certin exploit.
