The report, which covers the third quarter of 2010, shows that 10 percent of attacks that came from mobile networks are directed at Port 23, which Telnet uses. That marks a somewhat unusual spike for the aging protocol used to log into remote servers but that has been gradually replaced by SSH."
Some programming languages manage to absorb change, but withstand progress.
