 Problem Description:

 Updated xinetd package fixes security vulnerability:
 
 It was found that xinetd ignored the user and group configuration
 directives for services running under the tcpmux-server service. This
 flaw could cause the associated services to run as root. If there was
 a flaw in such a service, a remote attacker could use it to execute
 arbitrary code with the privileges of the root user (CVE-2013-4342).
