A buffer overrun condition was discovered in Solaris 2.6 X_86 in /usr/bin/cancel. This buffer overflow is apparently present in the SPARC version as well although it is thought to be unexploitable. Previous versions of Solaris did not ship with /usr/bin/cancel as SUID root, so while the buffer overflow was present it was harmless. Solaris 7.0 fixes this problem by changing the vulnerable function call. 

/**
*** cancelex - i386 Solaris root exploit for /usr/bin/cancel
***
*** Tested and confirmed under Solaris 2.6 (i386)
***
*** Usage: % cancelex hostname [offset]
***
*** where hostname is the name of a host running the printer service on
*** TCP port 515 (such as "localhost" perhaps) and offset (if present)
*** is the number of bytes to add to the stack pointer to calculate your
*** target return address; try -1000 to 1000 in increments of 100 for
*** starters.
