aix versions 4.x.x will let a non-priveledged user clear the
network interface statistics, thus annoying system administrators and
interfering with the system scripts that depend on those numbers >:-]

$ netstat -in --> shows stats
$ netstat -Zi --> clears them without checking the uid

ibm was informed about a month ago and the problem was taken care of.
