iDEFENSE: U.S. TurboLinux security severely out of date

Linux Today: "As of the time of this report, the last security update announced on the US TurboLinux website was
on January 24, 2002, regarding a problem in xinetd. The last security updates released on the official US FTP site were on February 8, 2002. Additionally, the US TurboLinux security-announcement mailing list has been inactive since January 2002 as well. Inferring from these lapses, it would seem that TurboLinux Inc.'s Linux distribution contains multiple security vulnerabilities that remain exploitable at the time of this advisory."
