There's no patch yet, but Sun is apparently working on one. The Bug-IDs
are 1219835 for Solaris 1.x (SunOS 4.x) and 1220257 for Solaris 2.x.
Try to give those to local Sun support and see what happens :-)

Solaris 2.x ??? - I thought this is a BSD problem? Are you telling
me that *all* my Solaris boxes are vulnerable too?

Also local Sun support told me that the patch for Bug 1219835 has been
integrated into SunOS 4.1.4 and there probably won't be a patch for
older versions! Here's the bug info they sent me:

 Bug Id:     1219835
 Product:  sunos
 Category:  utility
 Subcategory:  other
 Release summary: 4.1.3, 4.1.4, 4.1.3_U1, 4.1
 Bug/Rfe:  bug
 State:  integrated

But now I'm really getting confused when I read the mail by Andy Cowley

I have this problem logged with Sun. the latest (12:03 BST 19 Sept 95)
 is that T (test?)
patches are available to existing fault call owners. If the problem
is severe for you persuade Sun to send them. They are :-

        4.1.3_U1 domestic libc          = T101759-04
        4.1.3_U1 international libc     = T101558-07
        4.1.4 domestic libc             = T102544-03
        4.1.4 international libc        = T102545-03

These are betas and Sun will expect testing and a report.

So why would there be a test patch for SunOS 4.1.4 if it was fixed
in that release? I guess one of you guys is wrong.
