And some allow internet access via telnet (no, I won't tell you who those are).

You amuse me. The meme "telnet is insecure" is not inaccurate but it is rather incomplete. Telnet is only insecure if you've got a "man in the middle". If you've got that, "he" already knows who those clients are. :)

    . . . and if you know who those clients are, you know who to target for a "man in the middle" attack. Nice how that works.
