Don't know if this is the right place to ask about this.... but here goes...
Found this article. http://www.techextreme.com/perl/story/12279.html

This affects machines based on BSD, and I was wondering, since OSX is based in BSD, should we be worrying? BTW OSX does ship with telenet services on and running at startup.
What do ya think?

I wouldn't worry too much about this. It doesn't appear that Apple included Telnet in OSX. I imagine it could easily be installed if a user really wanted it, but then they would be responsible for the related problems instead of Apple.
