           SECURITY PROBLEM IN SUN 386i SYSTEMS
 
APPLICABLE OPERATING SYSTEM:  SunOS 4.0.1 on Sun 386i Systems only
 
  PROBLEM: A serious security problem exists with the Sun 386i
           product.  
 
   STATUS: Sun support and Sun's field offices are able to supply a new
           set of programs that will solve the problem.  We strongly recommend
           contacting Sun to prevent possible compromises of your 386i systems.
 
 CONTACTS: Sun service hotline at 1-800-USA-4SUN.
           Your local Sun representative for site-specific information.
           CERT at (412) 268-7090  for general problem information.           
           SRI/NIC at 1-800-235-3155 for general information.
 
  NOTE:    This bulletin represents the best information available
           at this time to fix this problem.  As with any program
           modification, CHECK WITH YOUR VENDOR BEFORE APPLYING.
 
  INTERIM FIX: Until you receive the new programs from Sun, we suggest
           that you change the protection of the login program in
           the following manner:

                	chmod 2750 login

           This modification will allow login to continue to work but
           removes users access to it.
 
  DETAILS: (from Sun).
