Solaris 2.5.1 patch not effective?

I have two reports from other UC campuses that exploits of the Solaris
ufsrestore bug are being used against *sparc* hosts.

At least one of the sites reports that patch 104490-05 (Solaris 2.5.1,
sparc arch) was applied on a system that was compromised (presumably
via this method).

Consider this an *inconclusive* warning that the Sun ufsrestore patch
*may* not be effective.  I have a call into Sun on this one.  If we
can get the binary of the exploit, it might be interesting.

[The reporting sites are BCC'ed on this note.  If they want to go
public, its up to them.]

Been there, done that, erased the evidence, blackmailed the witnesses...
