Change the Solaris telnet banner

The default banner displayed during a telnet login contains the Solaris version which can be useful to a potential attacker.

Create a plain text file called /etc/default/telnetd which contains a line such as:

BANNER="Unauthorized access prohibited\n\n"

The \n characters encode blank lines.
