I posted this to the unisog mailing list and *believe* it might help:
At I've whipped up
a front-end replacement for /usr/bin/login (in perl) that might help us.
It's brain dead dumb but should protect login enough while we await
vendor fixes.

I've tested on Solaris 8 with telnet and rlogin -- it seems to work

I'm interested in comments -- good, bad or indifferent.
