The remote host is missing an update announced via the referenced Security Advisory.
It was found that xinetd ignored the user and group configuration directives for services running under the tcpmux-server service. This flaw could cause the associated services to run as root. If there was a flaw in such a service, a remote attacker could use it to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the root user. (CVE-2013-4342 )
Run yum update xinetd to update your system.
