Sun Alert 102485 Security Vulnerabilities in The Solaris Event Port API May Result in a Denial of Service (DoS) Condition

Guest Author
Product: Solaris 10 Operating System

Security vulnerabilities in the Solaris event port API may allow a local unprivileged user the ability to run an application which uses the API in such a way as to cause the system to panic, leading to a Denial of Service (DoS) condition.

The Apache server is an example of an application that makes use of the event port API. On a system running Apache2 (Apache/2.2.0) it may be possible for a remote unprivileged user to cause that system to panic, resulting in a Denial of Service (DoS) condition.
