Re: [Full-disclosure] Solaris telnet vulnberability - how many on your network?




The simplest possible fix on such short notice:

http://cvs.opensolaris.org/source/diff/onnv/onnv-gate/usr/src/cmd/cmd-inet/usr.sbin/in.telnetd.c
?r2=3629&r1=2923

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.
#
CONSOLE=/dev/console

Not a fix to be sure, but at least prevents a remote login.

That is the default; and preventing root logins does not prevent
other logins.

"svcadm disable telnet" is the best fix (and there's really no
reason to enable it)
