Solaris cb_reset Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

by platon on June 23rd, 2001 A buffer overflow vulnerability exists in the 'cb_reset' command included with the SUNWssp package for SunOS...

The overflow occurs when a string exceeding approximately 600 characters in length is passed to the 'cb_reset' program from the command line. Because the program is installed setuid root, it may be possible for local users to execute arbitrary code/commands with those privileges.
