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
Release summary: 4.1.3, 4.1.4, 4.1.3_U1, 4.1
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.
