Sun Alert 102947 A Security Vulnerability Resulting From Solaris 10 fcp(7D) and devfs(7FS) Interaction May Allow Certain File Operations to Cause a System Hang

Guest Author
Product: Solaris 10 Operating System

A security vulnerability with Fibre Channel Protocol driver (fcp(7D)) and Devices File System (devfs(7FS)) in Solaris 10 may allow a local unprivileged user to cause commands such as cfgadm(1M) or format(1M) to hang when run, or cause the system as a whole to hang. This is a type of denial of service (DoS) to the system.

Note: This issue may also occur accidentally and not as a result of a Denial of Service attempt.

Avoidance: Patch
State: Resolved
