Re: Problem with SATAN/VMS

SATAN on AIX has a similar problem.
AIX emits a permission denied that the simple test (test -s) doesn't catch

The bourne shell script 'rsh.satan' falsely reports a vulnerability on 
hosts that are running DEC VMS 6.1  This is because the OS sends the 
following message to standard output:

      UCX$RSHD - Permission denied - host IP addr

To fix, just add a test for the above string to the 'if $TEST -s 
"$tmp_file"' test in 'rsh.satan'.
