sssu_sunos strings smiley face

I've not used the above command and we'd received an error about a script that uses it. I typed the following to see what it was doing and was amazed to see a smiley face.

strings sssu_sunos |more


I've attached a picture as cut and paste dones't work into here.

This looks dodgy to me, looks like something a hacker would do, or at least unprofessional, any ideas?

What is the path of the file that contains that "picture"? What product contains that file? StorageWorks Command View EVA?

Have you compared that file's checksum with what it should be?

Re: sssu_sunos strings smiley face

the sssu_sunos command just live in a local directory on the server, not in /opt or anything like that.

According to the pdf below it's called Storage System Scripting Utility. Unfortunately i've not got a file i can check the checksum against.

Re: sssu_sunos strings smiley face

Well I was able to find the picture. I downloaded HP StorageWorks Command View SSSU v9.1 software (T5494-10016.iso), mounted the ISO and found /iso/SSSU/sun_os/sssu_sunos. Using "strings -a" and searching for "oooo" found the picture.

Please report this to the Response Center. You can mention my name.

Dennis,

Thanks for doing that, appreciate it. At least it puts my mind at rest.

Not sure what the response centre is, do i need a support contract to log things with that?

Yes. You can use the "Support Case Manager" link to the left.

No one has mentioned it yet but has anyone noticed the message embedded in the image?

It was pretty obvious. :-)

Re: sssu_sunos strings smiley face

I found a contact for StorageWorks and he'll file a defect to remove that "easter egg" you found.

Notified developer team through internal forums too. Confimed this was intended to be removed long ago.
