Sun Solaris DTrace Local Denial of Service Vulnerability

Sun Solaris is prone to a local denial-of-service vulnerability.

Local attackers may exploit this issue to trigger kernel panics or system hangs, denying service to legitimate users. The vendor states that this issue may be less likely (or at least more difficult) to trigger on x86-based computers.

Solaris 10 SPARC and x86 are affected by this issue.
