I take it your doing this from the same machine.
Security allows it to accept from "localhost" a
connection. Check your configuration and modify it, if
your wish it to not accept the connection; although, this
might*something up (don't know what).
If your machine is physically secure (door locked and only
you have the key) then it doesn't matter that "they" can
telnet from the local machine to the localhost does it.
Unless you're not locking your machine when you walk
