1) Buffer overflows inX11/Motif libraries

Document ID:  HPSBUX9707-067
Date Loaded:  970730
      Title:  Buffer overflows in X11/Motif libraries

- -------------------------------------------------------------------------
         HEWLETT-PACKARD SECURITY BULLETIN: #00067, 30 July 1997
- -------------------------------------------------------------------------

 The information in the following Security Bulletin should be acted upon
 as soon as possible.  Hewlett Packard will not be liable for any
 consequences to any customer resulting from customer's failure to fully
 implement instructions in this Security Bulletin as soon as possible.

- -------------------------------------------------------------------------
PROBLEM:  Buffer overflows in X11/Motif libraries.

PLATFORM: HP9000 Series 700/800 running releases 9.X and 10.X

DAMAGE:   Suid/sgid programs linked with X11/Motif libraries can
          be exploited to increase privileges.

SOLUTION: Install the patches listed below.  Any programs that are
          linked archived with any previous versions of the X11/Motif
          libraries must be relinked with the libraries in the patches.

AVAILABILITY:  The patches are available now.
- -------------------------------------------------------------------------
I.
   A. Background - Several buffer overflow conditions have been
                   identified.  These have been present in all
                   previous versions of the X11/Motif libraries.

   B. Fixing the problem - Install the applicable patches:

      PHSS_11626         9.X X11R5/Motif1.2  Runtime
      PHSS_11627         9.X X11R5/Motif1.2  Development

      PHSS_11043       10.0X X11R5/Motif1.2  Runtime (also for 10.10)
      PHSS_11044       10.0X X11R5/Motif1.2  Development

      PHSS_11043       10.10 X11R5/Motif1.2  Runtime (also for 10.0X)
      PHSS_11045       10.10 X11R5/Motif1.2  Development

      PHSS_11628       10.20 X11R5/Motif1.2  Runtime
      PHSS_11629       10.20 X11R5/Motif1.2  Development

      PHSS_11628       10.20 X11R6/Motif1.2  Runtime
      PHSS_11630       10.20 X11R6/Motif1.2  Development

      PHSS_9858          9.X VUE 3.0

      PHSS_9804        10.01 VUE 3.0

      PHSS_9805        10.10/10.20 VUE 3.0

      PHSS_11373         9.X JSE A.B9.40

      Then relink any suid/sgid programs that use X11 or Motif archived
      libraries.

   C. Recommended solution - Install the applicable patches and
      relink archived suid/sgid programs.

   D. Impact of the patch - The fixes are in the X11/Motif patches.
      The VUE and JSE patches make use of the libraries in the
      X11/Motif patches.

Document ID:  HPSBUX9707-068
Date Loaded:  970814
      Title:  Security Vulnerability in Novell Netware 3.12 on HP-UX

- -------------------------------------------------------------------------
**REVISED** HEWLETT-PACKARD SECURITY BULLETIN: #00068, 30 July 1997
Last Revised: 12 Aug 1997
- -------------------------------------------------------------------------

 The information in the following Security Bulletin should be acted upon
 as soon as possible.  Hewlett Packard will not be liable for any

          earlier allows unauthorized users to read files.

PLATFORM: HP 9000 Series 700/800s running only specific releases of HP-UX

DAMAGE:   Allows users unauthorized file read access.

SOLUTION: **REVISED**
          Apply the following patches as needed:
                 PHNE_11684 for HP-UX release 9.04, or
           -->>  PHNE_10341 for HP-UX release 10.01, and
                 PHNE_11722 for HP-UX release 10.01, or
                 PHNE_11723 for HP-UX release 10.10, or
                 PHNE_11724 for HP-UX release 10.20.

AVAILABILITY: All patches are available now.
CHANGE SUMMARY: Patch ID of HP-UX 10.01 corrected in SOLUTION: area.
- -------------------------------------------------------------------------
I.
   A. Background
      Hewlett-Packard Company has discovered a defect in the Novell
      Netware 3.12 product running on HP-UX.  This defect is seen on
      both 9.04 and 10.X operating systems, and allows users to read
      files from an unauthorized PC.  Native Netware is exempt from
      this defect.

      NOTE: The product in question only runs on HP-UX releases 9.04,
            10.01, 10.10, or 10.20.

   B. Fixing the problem
      For HP-UX 9.04 users, simply obtain Netware release B.09.08.002
      to be used as a full product replacement.  This is the patch
      PHNE_11684.  Installation will require rebooting the server.

      For 10.01 users, before continuing to use Netware, first obtain
      PHNE_10341 (the full product replacement patch B.10.08) and then
      apply patch PHNE_11722 (B.10.08.002).  PHNE_11722 will not
      install unless PHNE_10341 has been previously installed.

      For HP-UX 10.10 and 10.20 update to the Netware B.10.08 release
      from the latest application release CD, DART32 or newer.
      Then install the appropriate patch (see above).

   C. Recommended solution
      The patch is a cumulative patch and and fully fixes the
      discovered vulnerability.
