Hi, yesterday one of my users gained root access to my system. 
They did it by exploiting a bug in /usr/bin/sperl4*
Why does FreeBSD ship with a security hole?  Is this a new one that you didn't
know about?  How can I remedy the problem?  Right now, I deleted the file from
the server.  I am new to FreeBSD and would like to know how to fix it.

Thanks,
Michael perl@netmug.org
