    Exclamation Vulnerability: Sun Solaris mibiisa Remote Buffer Overflow

    A buffer overflow vulnerability has been identified in mibiisa. The vulnerability is due to an unsafe memory copy operation. Packet fields of excessive length relayed to mibiisa may corrupt the process stack. An attacker may craft a request to overwrite the return address of the affected stack frame with an arbitrary value.

    Remote: Yes

    Exploit: No

    Solution: A workaround is to disable the mibiisa service. After disabling the service, administrators should terminate it if it is currently running.

    Sun has released fixes:

    *sigh* That's all I have to say... just *sigh*

    (I knew I didn't use that for a very good reason - aside from the fact that I disable pretty much every single default service unless I know, without a doubt, that I need them)
