Would be helpful to see whats in /var/log/exim4/paniclog .

Telnet shouldn't be running normally. Would be good to know what else
you've got installed (fail2ban or sth similar?).

You can read (and write to) the filesystem of your slug when you pull out
the usb-stick where you installed debian (after shutdown ...) and mount it
on a pc with linux (a live-system or a virtual machine will also do).
But without knowing what exactly you did before it will not be easy to get
an idea how to repair.
