Sun Solaris could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by a format string vulnerability in the Sun Solstice Enterprise Master Agent (snmpdx). A remote attacker could pass arbitrary code to the snmpdx daemon using malformed format specifiers, which would be executed on the system with root privileges.
