Title:Sendmail Forward File Privilege Escalation Vulnerability

The remote sendmail server, according to its version number,
may be vulnerable to a local privilege escalation vulnerability
when using forward files.

*** Sun did not increase the version number of their sendmail
*** when patching Solaris 7 and 8, so this might be a false
*** positive on these platforms.

An attacker may set up a special .forward file in his
home and send a mail to himself, which will trick sendmail
and will allow him to execute arbitrary commands with
root privileges.

Risk factor : High
