Comments (Legacy)
 Frech> XF:solaris-lpstat-bo
 Christey> It is unclear from Casper Dik's followup whether this is
   exploitable or not.
 Dik> Sunbug 4129917
   (other reports in the same thread suggest that the then current patchd id
   fix the problem)
 Christey> Confirm with Casper Dik that the overflow is in the -c option,
   and if so, include it in the description to differentiate
   it from the lpstat -n buffer overflow.
