    Document ID: HPSBUX0106-155
    Date Loaded: 20010626
          Title: Security Vulnerability in CIFS/9000 Server


    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: CIFS/9000 Server (SAMBA) allows malicious local users
              to overwrite arbitrary files and devices.

    PLATFORM: HP 9000 servers running CIFS/9000 Server version A.01.06,
              or lower.

    DAMAGE: Arbitrary files and devices can be overwritten.

    SOLUTION: Install PHNE_24164

    AVAILABILITY: The patch is available now.
       A. Background
          Local HP-UX users must intentionally modify certain CIFS/9000
          Server resources in order to affect the damage (i.e., technically
          proficient and malicious). Problem only occurs during printing
          operations; thus, CIFS/9000 Servers used only as file servers are
          not vulnerable.

       B. Recommended solution

          Install patch PHNE_24164 for HP-UX release 11.00 or 11.11.
