Hi,

The /usr/lib/exrecover contains a buffer overflow
(this command is suid in Solaris 2.4/5/6)
The problem occurs when it gets the second argument, it accepts the
argument without checking out its lenght and this causes the problem.
The overflow seems to be in the heap space.

$ /usr/lib/exrecover hola `perl -e 'printf "A"x50000'`
Segmentation Fault (core dumped)

$ gdb /usr/lib/exrecover --core=core
