You can reboot solaris boxes with ping -sv -i 127.0.0.1 22.214.171.124

Stupid DOS attack, plus you need to be a local user.
Apparently all versions of Solaris up to (but not including) 2.6

Subject: Solaris Ping bug (DoS)
I briefly searched the bugtraq archives and didn't see this one, so here's a
way to reboot a Solaris box, and is exploitable by anyone with an account on
the system since ping is setuid root.
ping -sv -i 127.0.0.1 126.96.36.199
On solaris 2.5, causes the machine to reboot (personal experience). I've
had independent reports of it crashing 2.5.1, and 2.5 (x86). It probably works
on all versions of Solaris.
To "fix" the denial of service:
chmod go-x /usr/sbin/ping
if you don't mind disabling Ping on your system.
