	According to the latest issue of the Sun Observer the
	newest version of SunOS, 4.0.2, fixes (among other things)
	five security bugs that are present in SunOS 4.0.1. A list
	of these bugs was not given.  I know one bug is the line


	being substituted for each blank line left in /etc/passwd,
	but what are the other four?  We probably won't be upgrading
	our 386i to 4.0.2 for a few months and this article has
	gotten a few managment (read, "non-unix") people quite
	paraniod about our current system security.
