28.9 Security Loopholes

28.9.9 /etc/inetd.conf

This file controls access to many of the services on your system. Some of these services you may not want to provide access to. Remove or comment out entries to such services and then send inetd a hangup signal (kill -HUP on the process) so that it will reread this file.

You could also install TCPwrapper so that you control which machines or networks can access individual services.
