 Problem Description:

 A security issue was identified and fixed in xinetd:
 
 builtins.c in Xinetd before 2.3.15 does not check the service type
 when the tcpmux-server service is enabled, which exposes all enabled
 services and allows remote attackers to bypass intended access
 restrictions via a request to tcpmux port 1 (CVE-2012-0862).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
