I completely agree.
But, the remote setting of TTYPROMPT does matter. you can not succeed in
login without remotely changing the TTYPROMPT. This is also the bug
mentioned in Jonathan's original letter (bid:5531).
That's why this bug is not exploitable using remote applications like
rlogin, ssh (at least if you are not crazy enough to enable UseLogin
option) or X.25 pad: rlogin and pad aren't able to pass env vars others
than TERM, while ssh normally don't uses /bin/login for user authentication.
If you have applied patches for these 2 bugs, you are safe now.
BTW: you can change multiple "c "s to "a=b"s, actually, since SYS V
login treat " " as environ var separator, you can also use >=64 words
separated by " " or "\t". they will all work.
Agreed as well.
