Re: ipcs on HP-UX 11.0

I found a vulnerability with ipcs a while back (January 2002), but on a
different platform. Details:
% uname -a
Digital UNIX V4.0F (Rev. 1229) ; OSF1 V4.0 1229 alpha
% ls -l /usr/bin/ipcs
-rws--x--x 1 root bin 32768 Jun 3 1999 /usr/bin/ipcs
% /usr/bin/ipcs -N `perl -e "print 'A' x 314"`
There was also an overflow with the -K option if I remember correctly.
I reported this problem to Compaq, the vulnerability was confirmed, and
the bug was assigned a tracking number. Since then I have not been able
to get any information from Compaq on this issue.
Can anyone confirm this on a later version?

All ipcs vulnerabilities I know about are on HP Tru64.
This system was patched with PHCO_18374 - the lastest patch for ipcs.
I just wondering if it was known before, and if it was - maybe someone has a working proof
of concept on this.
