  Multiple Vulnerabilities in Solaris in.rarpd


Rarpd is a reverse ARP protocol for small to medium sized networks. In the
Solaris implementation (in.rarpd) there seems to be 3 remotely exploitable
buffer overflows, 2 locally exploitable and 2 cases of format string


Vulnerable code:
In the functions error and syserr there contains 2 common syslog calls
without format strings.

static void
char *s;
        char buf[256];

        (void) sprintf(buf, "%s: %s", s, strerror(errno));
        (void) fprintf(stderr, "%s: %s\n", cmdname, buf);
        syslog(LOG_ERR, buf);

/* VARARGS1 */
static void
error(char *fmt, ...)
        char buf[256];
        va_list ap;

        va_start(ap, fmt);
        (void) vsprintf(buf, fmt, ap);
        (void) fprintf(stderr, "%s: %s\n", cmdname, buf);
        syslog(LOG_ERR, buf);

There are two vulnerable calls that could be exploited locally or
