Keep in mind that you shouldn't fully rely on service banners. These are easily faked to keep the script kiddies away. I know, that's security through obscurity, but not the whole world is Full Disclosure.

keep in mind that this has been like this for *YEARS*. I highly doubt they have gone through the trouble of faking output for the format string vulnerability. Telnet to the port and test the site exec shit by hand yourself... although I have not checked I would almost bet you get memory addresses popping up.

I actually spoke to previous sco admins about it when I used to work with them on security issues. At the time they could not track down the admin of the box... after the caldera merger I would imagine it just sat there.
