I have *no* idea if the following proposal is possible or advicable.
If I understood right what you said, the problem is that this person can
access your server using extra commands and not username&password.
Couldn't you check packages for this commands or disallow this commands
in your telnet server?
Perhaps a silly way of 'solving' this - perhaps not even possible...
