UnixWare 7.1.4 UnixWare 7.1.3 : ppp buffer overflow
iDEFENSE has identified a Buffer Overflow vulnerability in
SCO Unixware ppp prompt. Local exploitation of a buffer
overflow vulnerability in the ppp binary, allows attackers
to gain root privileges.
This could lead to the execution of arbitrary code with root
privileges, as ppp is setuid root by default.
