Re: Buffer overflows in Solaris 2.6 ufsdump and ufsrestore

I confirmed the segmentation fault for Solaris 2.6 SPARC on a Sun
Ultra Enterprise 2 box running Solaris 2.6 with the current
(4/8) recommended & security patch cluster, plus the following
patches specific to ufsdump and ufsrestore [1]:

105722-01: SunOS 5.6: /usr/lib/fs/ufs/ufsdump patch
105724-01: SunOS 5.6: /usr/lib/fs/ufs/ufsrestore patch

I have an open ticket with SunService on this vulnerability.
Best fix I know of for now:

chmod ug-s /usr/lib/fs/ufs/ufsdump
chmod u-s /usr/lib/fs/ufs/ufsrestore

Unfortunately, my job doesn't use gcc for development, so I was
unable to compile ufsdump.c at all to test for tty or even
root shell exploitation.

[1]You need a SunService contract *and* a valid registration at
http://sunsolve.sun.com/sunsolve/contractservices.html to
obtain these patches.
