**sadmind** is a service which coordinates distributed system administration operations remotely. The Sun Solstice AdminSuite runs
**sadmind** with the
**AUTH_SYS** authentication method by default.
**sadmind** running with the
**AUTH_SYS** authentication method allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary commands.
**sadmind** service is not needed, disable it service by commenting the line beginning with "100232" out of
**/etc/inetd.conf**, and restarting the inetd process. Otherwise, install the patches referenced in Sun Alert 56740.
