Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Fedora Two buffer overflow flaws were discovered in the way the telnet client handles messages from a server. An attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code on a victim's machine if the victim can be tricked into connecting to a malicious telnet server. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CAN-2005-0468 and CAN-2005-0469 to these issues.
