Description


A security issue has been reported in Solaris, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to gain knowledge of potentially sensitive information.

The security issue is caused due to the "/usr/ucb/ps" command revealing the environment variables and values of all processes to an unprivileged user when run with the "-e" option. This can potentially reveal certain information of processes that belong to the root user.

The security issue has been reported in Solaris 8 and 9 on both the x86 and SPARC platforms.
