A vulnerability has been reported in Sun Solaris, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions.
The vulnerability is caused due to Solaris Trusted Extensions Labeled Networking allowing remote unauthorised users from another system (at the same label) to gain access to the global zone (administrative zone) of an affected system.
Successful exploitation requires access to a username and password that is valid within the global zone and that a labeled zone, which is in the "installed" state exists on the target system.
The vulnerability is reported in Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris systems which have installed and configured Solaris Trusted Extensions.
