Sun OpenSolaris mdb code execution
|opensolaris-mdb-code-execution (49468)||High Risk|
Sun OpenSolaris could allow a local attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by an error in zone implementation. By attaching an mdb process within the global zone to a non-global zone process, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the system with privileges of the victim.
