Hi Steph,

There is a bug in Solaris' telnet that allows you to crash the
local session, but that's the extent of what we've found so far.

We're fixing that and continuing to investigate whether or not
an exploit is possible, but we haven't been able to find one and
nothing has been reported to us.
