The Computer Incident Advisory Capability (CIAC) has learned of a 
vulnerability in DECWindows running under ULTRIX.  There is a 
pseudofile, /dev/mem, which contains passwords.  Passwords can be
compromised if someone accesses this pseudofile.  CIAC will advise
you of a workaround or fix when either becomes available.
