Vulnerability: Mandrake xinetd

A vulnerability was discovered in xinetd where memory was allocated and not freed if a connection was refused. As a result, an attacker could crash the xinetd server, leaving its services unavailable. Other flaws were also discovered that could cause incorrect operation in certain configurations.

These issues have been fixed upstream in xinetd version 2.3.11 which are provided in an update.
