A vulnerability has been reported in Sun Solaris, which can be exploited by malicious users to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).
The vulnerability is caused due to an unspecified error related to the "sendfilev()" system call and can be exploited to cause a system panic, e.g. by a local user via a specially crafted program or by creating a specially crafted web page that is being hosted on Apache 2.2.x.
Successful exploitation via Apache web pages requires that Apache 2.2.x is compiled without certain unspecified compiler switches.
NOTE: Reportedly, Apache 2.2.x shipped with Solaris will not trigger this vulnerability.
The vulnerability is reported on Solaris 10 for both the SPARC and x86 platforms.
