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-2.3.3-3.i386.rpm

  The source RPM can be downloaded here:

  ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/SRPMS/xinetd-2.3.3-3.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
