First, Solaris 9 comes with 61 listening ports, as shown in the analysis here. I did the netstat on my VMware image of a completely virgin Solaris 9 system. I thought it was 60+ for TCP alone, but this is still over 10 times what Red Hat 9 was shipping with. Solaris 8 was worse, so Sun is improving.

Next, tnamed is still active on Solaris 9. From the same box:

# grep tnamed /etc/inetd.conf name dgram udp wait root /usr/sbin/in.tnamed in.tnamed

Finally, as another poster pointed out, Sun's got a great tool in JASS, a vendor-supplied tool. And we all owe a debt to Titan, the first majorly popular Sun hardening program. YASSPis also out there for Sun.

In case of injury notify your superior immediately. He'll kiss it and make it better.
