Hi Everyone,

Accented characters are shown as Junk characters on Solaris 2.8.

These characters were displayed properly on Solaris 2.6.
Please let me know if any setting has to be done.

Thanks,
Vinay

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

I'd also have a look at your locale settings before you kick off the browser (at the prompt, run "locale").  Verify that you're using a locale settings that can actually display accented chars.

One other thing you could try, is to set LC_ALL and to the Unicode (or UTF8) locale (assuming they're installed on the machine).  Either of these 2 char sets should be able to display almost every character out there.
