Sun Solaris 2.6/7.0/8/9 vfs_getvfssw function Local Privilege Escalation Vulnerability. CVE-2004-2686. Local exploit for solaris platform

It has been reported that Sun Solaris may be prone to a local privilege escalation vulnerability that may allow an attacker to gain root access to a vulnerable system. The issue exists due to insufficient sanitization of user-supplied data via the vfs_getvfssw() function in the Solaris kernel. An attacker can load a user-specified kernel module by using directory traversal sequences and employing the mount() or sysfs() system calls.
