    Solaris flaw being 'actively exploited'

    The vulnerability lies in the Common Desktop Environment (CDE) graphical user interface for *nix systems. There is a remotely exploitable buffer overflow flaw in the CDE Subprocess Control Service, known as 'dtspcd', which accepts requests from clients to execute commands and launch applications remotely.

    Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.
