    We have a hacked IRIX box where the intruder hijacked a
    user password then apparently attacked the box locally via
    a buffer overflow.  We found a series of core dumps in the
    hijacked user directory generated by "gr."
    Unfortunately, I cannot find any references to what gr actually
    is or a known exploit for it.  Perhaps someone on the list
    has more information on this?
