http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/36169

"Sun Solaris is prone to a remote denial-of-service vulnerability
because of an error in the 'sockfs' kernel module.

Exploiting this issue allows attackers to cause a panic in a vulnerable
Solaris webserver and the system as a whole, effectively denying service
to legitimate users.

This issue affects Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris based on builds snv_41 or
later."
