THe program under question is /usr/contrib/bin/screen (BSDI).  This is
screen version 3.05.02 and is installed setuid root, as it is "supposed"
to be.  Here is a demonstration:

$ screen

The core.screen file contains unencrypted password strings from
/etc/master.passwd, which of course, should not be readable by me.  I'm
also sure there's a buffer-overflow here but I havn't had as much time as
I would like to to look through the source yet.
