Comments (Legacy)
 Jones> Need clarification/verification.
 Alderson> Personally, since this one is not only vague, but extremely vague
   and not even confirmed, I believe it should be lumped with the previous one
   that has been confirmed and is much less vague.
 Christey> Correction: this is a RARP (Reverse Address Resolution
   Protocol) server.
   A colleague of mine with access to Solaris source has noted
   that the affected syslog calls can not be fed user-supplied
   data, at least for Solaris; if so, then this is not a vulnerability.
