COMMAND

	in.timed

SYSTEMS AFFECTED

	All?

PROBLEM

	In caldera advisory [CSSA-2001-SCO.39]
	

	The timed program  does  not  enforce  null-termination  of  strings  in
	certain situations. It  is  possible  that  this  could  be  used  by  a
	malicious user to perform a remote denial-of-service attack.

SOLUTION

	If the in.timed service is not needed, it may be disabled.
	

	Caldera has released a patch :
