Xinetd Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Solution:
Version 2.1.8.9pre14, which ships with Red Hat Linux 7.1 is patched.

An update has been made available from Red Hat which reportedly corrects this issue. Though these updates were published in an advisory for another xinetd vulnerability (see BID 2826), the buffer overflow is reportedly eliminated as well.

Debian has also made updated packages available.
