Submission + - Penetration testing with IPv6 (

skade88 writes: Linux Pro Magazine has an article up covering a successful exploit that culminates in granting a root shell to the attacker. The root shell is gained over telnet on systems that have a dual network stack (IPv4 && IPv6). The article does not mention if this exploit is present in SSH or if it is just found in telnet. A very good solution would be to not allow telnet connections .... ever.
