S.u.S.E. in.identd Denial of Service Vulnerability

Solution:
Until a fix is released, Roman Drahtmueller <draht@suse.de> suggests (a patch is forthecoming):

In the meanwhile, you may want to disable the service by changing
START_IDENTD="yes" # default
to
START_IDENTD="no"
in /etc/rc.config and by killing the daemon: `killall in.identd´. Thanks to Niels for pointing this out, too.
