          Title: Security Vulnerabilities in CDE on HP-UX


    The information in the following Security Bulletin 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 Bulletin as soon as possible.

    PROBLEM: Buffer overflows and other vulnerabilities in CDE for HP-UX.

    PLATFORM: HP9000 Series 700/800 running HP-UX releases 10.10, 10.20,
               10.24, 11.00, 11.04 and 11.11.

    DAMAGE: Possible increase in privilege, denial of service.

    SOLUTION: Install the appropriate patch for the HP-UX release:

               10.10: PHSS_23355,
               10.20: PHSS_23796,
               10.24: PHSS_24097,

       A. Background
          Vulnerabilities have been found in several CDE modules.

       B. Fixing the problem
          Apply the appropriate patches as listed above. Because of the
