   Thanks to all that responded. To many to list! Here are the results:

AIX 3.2.X is reported as NOT vulnerable. The command does not have an -h
flag. But who knows it may have other problems. Poke it and see what you
can find.

AIX 4.1.X and 4.2 with all security PTF ARE vulnerable. The problem will
dump the first 256 bytes of any file you give it as an argument. It seems
IBM is aware of the problem. Quick fix: chmod u-s /usr/sbin/lquerypv
