telnet and harden-clients
 
Hi,

I have the harden-clients installed.

when I tried to install the telnet,

it showed me conflict.

# aptitude why telnet
Unable to find a reason to install telnet.

I am just curious how telnet work. Is it not so secure to have it? or
what make it conflict with that package.

Thanks for your time,

Best regards,

I think that is because everything in telnet is sent in plaintext...
password included. It is also vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks.

See : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telnet#Security
