For the past month, Norton 360 (on a Windows 7 32-bit platform) reports an identical intrusion attempt, every few minutes.  I've attached screenshots of the intrusion warning and the details shown by the Norton application.  I don't have a use for Telnet, so I renamed Windows\System32\tlntsvr.exe to tlntsvrxxx.exe, but the warnings continue.  If the intrusion is attempting to take advantage of a vulnerability in Telnet, I don't understand how that can continue, after renaming the allegedly-vulnerable file.Image1.jpg  Image2.jpg
