- The Telnet service is vulnerable, as information exchanged are un-encrypted
- It allows anyone within local network to sniff the data including login credentials in plain text that passes between the telnet client and the server.

- Disabling Telnet will also resolve many security vulnerabilities related to Telnet which may be detected by any security scanner used in the organization.
