    HEWLETT-PACKARD COMPANY SECURITY ADVISORY: #0007, 26 June 2000
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

-----------------------------------------------------------------
PROBLEM: Given a specific setup, users with ordinary database
          privileges can gain additional privileges.

PLATFORM: HP3000 running MPE/iX release 4.5 and newer.

DAMAGE: Unauthorized access.

TEMPORARY SOLUTION: Secure DBUTIL.PUB.SYS and your database schemas
          with a lockword.

AVAILABILITY: This advisory will be updated when patches are available.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
   A. Background

      Hewlett-Packard Company has learned of a procedure by which a user
      can gain additional privileges using DBUTIL.PUB.SYS.

   B. Recommended solution

      Until the patch is available, the recommended solution is to
      secure DBUTIL program and your database schemas with a lockword.

      For example, in CI prompt

        :RENAME DBUTIL.PUB.SYS, DBUTIL/LOCK.PUB.SYS
                                    /<lockword>

      A temporary fix in the DBUTIL program is also available for download
      on the JAZZ web server at:

             http://jazz.external.hp.com/src/

      It is under the DBUTIL.PUB.SYS program.

      NOTE: For more information on versions, download please read the
            security notice in the link

             http://jazz.external.hp.com/src/misc/dbutilsec.txt

     Download DBUTIL06 for TurboIMAGE version C.06.xx,
              DBUTIL07 for TurboIMAGE version C.07.xx, and
              DBUTIL08 for TurboIMAGE version C.08.xx.

     Also available for download is the corresponding program to replace
     the DBUTIL.PUB.SYS on your system.

     You will need to save the your system's old DBUTIL program and
     later on swap it back when you install TurboIMAGE patch, to
     avoid PATCH/iX from complaining about the checksum mismatch.
