    A set of new patches fix a sendmail security hole involving the
    "-oM" option. The patched vulnerability can allow a user with an
    unprivileged account on a system to overwrite system files and thus
    gain root access.

    We have produced patches for the versions of SunOS shown below.

         OS version Patch ID Patch File Name
         ---------- --------- ---------------
         4.1.3 100377-19 100377-19.tar.Z
         4.1.3_U1 101665-04 101665-04.tar.Z
         4.1.4 102356-01 102356-01.tar.Z
         5.3 101739-07 101739-07.tar.Z
         5.4 102066-04 102066-04.tar.Z
         5.4_x86 102064-04 102064-04.tar.Z

    not have a support contract, via anonymous ftp:
