Categories: safe, discovery

User Summary

Determines whether the encryption option is supported on a remote telnet server. Some systems (including FreeBSD and the krb5 telnetd available in many Linux distributions) implement this option incorrectly, leading to a remote root vulnerability. This script currently only tests whether encryption is supported, not for that particular vulnerability.
