Telnet Client Enabled, Disabled or Absent

Description: Whether the Telnet Client Enabled, Disabled or Absent

What The Data Shows: Telnet is insecure due to its lack of encryption, allowing sensitive information to be transmitted in clear text and making it vulnerable to interception and man-in-the-middle attacks.


SELECT name, caption, state,
    CASE state
        WHEN 1 THEN 'Enabled'
        WHEN 2 THEN 'Disabled'
        WHEN 3 THEN 'Absent'
        ELSE 'Unknown'
    END AS statename
FROM windows_optional_features
WHERE name = 'TelnetClient';
