</li><li>
Solaris 9 without patches <a href="/search/document.do?assetkey=urn:cds:docid:1-21-114503-08-1">114503-08</a> and <a href="/search/document.do?assetkey=urn:cds:docid:1-21-112945-29-1">112945-29</a>
</li></ul>

</li></ul>
<b>Note: </b>Solaris 7 is not affected by this issue.
<p></p><b>
3. Symptoms
</b>
