Sun denies Unix flaw

Author: JT Smith

LinuxSecurity: "Have you ever heard of a Linux vendor that tried to deny a security flaw in their open source product? "A number of Unix
vendors have been alerted to a security flaw, but Sun Microsystems is refusing to acknowledge that any problem exists. Six
vendors, including IBM, Hewlett-Packard and Sun, have been alerted to a vulnerability that ships with several Unix systems,
which could allow a malicious attacker to take control of an affected system."
