Sun Solaris telnet authentication bypass
|solaris-telnet-authentication-bypass (32434)||High Risk|
Sun Solaris could allow a remote attacker to bypass authentication, caused by an error in the telnet daemon (in.telnetd). A remote attacker could send a specially-crafted telnet login request to bypass authentication and gain unauthorized access to the system.
Note: Remote root login must be enabled to gain root privileges.
Refer to Sun Alert ID: 102802 for upgrade or suggested workaround information. See References.
