Hi Casper. While we have you here, any idea on when Sun will be patchingAm I missing something? This vulnerability is close to 10 years old.You're confused with AIX/Linux
It was in one of the first versions of Solaris after Sun moved off of
the SunOS BSD platform and over to SysV. It has specifically to do w=
how arguments are processed via getopt() if I recall correctly.
Solaris did not have the -f option in login until much later.
patched. Any Sun released advisory?
The simplest possible fix on such short notice:
How about just uncommenting the following from /etc/default/login
# If CONSOLE is set, root can only login on that device.
# Comment this line out to allow remote login by root.
Not a fix to be sure, but at least prevents a remote login.
