Parent article: A hole in telnetd
Most of the devices I have seen that run telnetd are things like powerstrips, printers, and serial consoles. They usually don't have a lot of CPU/random noise and so require keys to be uploaded somehow for SSL/SSH to work properly. If they use the same or related telnetd.. then the fixes are going to be a LOT harder to get out.
