Dear Bleeping Computer,

I installed MSBA (Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer) and I have worked my way down to one issue. It recommends to disable the telnet service - makes sense. I went into the services control panel and disabled telnet. After several reboots MSBA still says telnet needs to be disabled.

Anyway advice would be appreciated :thumbsup:

Could be a false positive. The telnet server is stopped and set for disabled? Or is it stopped and set for manual?

The telnet server is stopped and has been set to disabled, it was orginally on manual.
