The rest of the exploit is here! Solaris 2.5.1 ps!

All,

I finally have finished the exploit of /usr/bin/ps.  After some RTFM'ing
(I don't usually do application development under Solaris), I found that
the msgfmt utility will create a file which gettext() will understand.
(And I also found that, despite what the manual page says, it doesn't
seem to understand \xDD as a hexidecimal character.  Of course, that
could just be me, but I doubt it somehow.)

Below is the complete exploit, including C code for those of you who
missed it the first time, verified on a Sparc running 2.5.1.  (Unsure of
what patches are installed, etc.  YMMV.)

Enjoy!
