    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
        HEWLETT-PACKARD COMPANY SECURITY BULLETIN: #0165,
        Originally issued: 28 August '01
     ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    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: Security vulnerability in HP Process Resource Manager
              (PRM) product revision C.01.08.2 and earlier, on all
              releases of HP-UX.

    PLATFORM: HP 9000 Series 700/800 running HP-UX 10.20, HP-UX 11.00,
              and HP-UX 11.11.

    DAMAGE: Potential for non-root user to gain root/superuser
              priviledges.

    SOLUTION: Install the appropriate patch for the correct product
              and OS release:
               HP-UX 10.20 PRM C.01.07 PHSS_24863
               HP-UX 11.00/11.11 PRM C.01.08.2 PHSS_24864

    MANUAL ACTIONS: none

    AVAILABILITY: The patches are currently available.
     ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    A. Background

       A vulnerability exists in /opt/prm/bin for versions up to and
       including PRM C.01.08.2. Non-root users can potentially alter
       libraries and environment variables to gain root-level access.
       Since HP-UX Workload Manager (WLM) uses PRM to control resources,
       the vulnerability also exists for this software.

    B. Recommended solution

       Application of the appropriate patch selected from the list below
       completely solves this problem:

          PRM revision C.01.07 on HP-UX 10.20 PHSS_24863
          PRM revision C.01.08.2 on HP-UX 11.x PHSS_24864

       NOTE:
       If you are not currently at one of the above revisions of PRM for
       the given OS versions, it is highly recommended that you upgrade.
       To determine which version of PRM is installed, use the command
       "what /usr/bin/prmconfig".

       For HP-UX 11.x, PRM C.02.00 will be available on the
       September 2001 HP-UX Application Release media which addresses
       the problem.

       The problem can also be eliminated by installing the upcoming
       revision of the product, PRM C.02.00, from the September 2001
       HP-UX Application Release media.
       Customers who have HP-UX Workload Manager (WLM) installed should
       upgrade their PRM version to C.01.08.2 and install the appropriate
       patch, or install PRM C.02.00 from the September 2001 HP-UX
       Application Release media.

          Title: Sec. Vulnerability in CIFS/9000 Server password

    -----------------------------------------------------------------
        HEWLETT-PACKARD COMPANY SECURITY BULLETIN: #0164,
        Originally issued: 28 August '01
     -----------------------------------------------------------------
    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) might mistakenly change
              another user's password if "unix password sync" option
              is enabled during a client-initiated password change.

    PLATFORM: HP 9000 servers running CIFS/9000 Server version
              A.01.07, or lower.

    DAMAGE: Another user's password is changed instead of the
              correct user's.

    SOLUTION: Ensure that the "passwd program" option contains the
              %u substitution string as follows:
                         passwd program = /bin/passwd %u.

    MANUAL ACTIONS: Yes, ensure passwd program = /bin/passwd %u

    AVAILABILITY: Now.

     -----------------------------------------------------------------
     A. Background
        When "unix password sync" option is enabled, Samba will
        attempt to synchronize smbpasswd and unix password by
        calling the program in the "passwd program" option.
        If the passwd program string does not include the %u
        substitution, another user's password can be changed
        unintentionally during this process.

        The problem only appears on NT clients and does not
        affect Win9x clients.

     B. Fixing the problem
        Ensure that the "passwd program" option contains the %u
        substitution string.

            passwd program = /bin/passwd %u
