    ===============================================================================
    o Security Bulletin Digest Split
       ------------------------------

       The security bulletins digest has been split into multiple digests
       based on the operating system (HP-UX, MPE/iX, and HP Secure OS
       Software for Linux). You will continue to receive all security
       bulletin digests unless you choose to update your subscriptions.
       
       To update your subscriptions, use your browser to access the
       IT Resource Center on the World Wide Web at:

         http://www.itresourcecenter.hp.com/

       Under the Maintenance and Support Menu, click on the "more..." link.
       Then use the 'login' link at the left side of the screen to login
       using your IT Resource Center User ID and Password.

       Under the notifications section (near the bottom of the page), select
       Support Information Digests.

       To subscribe or unsubscribe to a specific security bulletin digest,
       select or unselect the checkbox beside it. Then click the
       "Update Subscriptions" button at the bottom of the page.

    Document ID: HPSBUX0207-199 Date Loaded: 20020711 Title: Sec. Vulnerability in rpc.ttdbserver (Rev.1)

    TEXT

    ----------------------------------------------------------------- **REVISED 01** HEWLETT-PACKARD COMPANY SECURITY BULLETIN: #0199 Originally issued: 12 July 2002 Last revision: 15 July 2002 -----------------------------------------------------------------

    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 overflow in rpc.ttdbserver

    **REVISED 01** PLATFORM: HP9000 Series 700/800 running HP-UX releases 10.10, -->> 10.20, 10.24, 11.00, 11.04, and 11.11.

    DAMAGE: Unauthorized access, increased privileges.

    SOLUTION: Until patches are available, manually install a replacement rpc.ttdbserver.

    MANUAL ACTIONS: Install replacement rpc.ttdbserver.

    AVAILABILITY: The replacement rpc.ttdbserver files are available now.

    CHANGE SUMMARY: Rev. 01 Added VVOS information.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------ A. Background A buffer overflow in rpc.ttdbserver has been reported by CERT in CA-2002-20. It may be possible to exploit this overflow to gain unauthorized access.

    B. Recommended solution Until patches are available, install the appropriate file to replace rpc.ttdbserver.

    **REVISED 01** -->>Note: The 10.20 file should be used for 10.24. -->> The 11.00 file should be used for 11.04.

    -->> On 10.24 and 11.04 (VVOS) rpc.ttdbserver is disabled -->> by default.

    1. Download rpc.ttdbserver.tar.gz from the ftp site. This file is temporary and will be deleted when patches are available from the standard HP web sites, including itrc.hp.com.

    System: hprc.external.hp.com (192.170.19.51) Login: ttdb1 Password: ttdb1

    FTP Access: hprc.external.hp.com/">ftp://ttdb1:ttdb1hprc.external.hp.com/ or: 192.170.19.51/">ftp://ttdb1:ttdb1192.170.19.51/

    file: rpc.ttdbserver.tar.gz

    Note: There is an ftp defect in IE5 that may result in a browser hang. To work around this: - Select Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced - Un-check the option: [ ] Enable folder view for FTP sites

    2. Copy the rpc.ttdbserver.tar.gz file to a protected directory and unpack it. If you wish to verify the md5 sum before unpacking the rpc.ttdbserver.tar.gz file, please refer to:

    HPSBUX9408-016 Patch sums and the MD5 program

    The md5 sum for rpc.ttdbserver.tar.gz is:

    MD5 (rpc.ttdbserver.tar.gz) = da1be3aaf70d0e2393bd9a03feaf4b1d

    3. Install the new rpc.ttdbserver file using the install_rpc.ttdbserver script or some similar procedure. The install_rpc.ttdbserver script is included in rpc.ttdbserver.tar.gz.

    For example on a 10.20 system:

    ./install_rpc.ttdbserver rpc.ttdbserver.1020

    4. The what(1) and cksum(1) outputs are:

    TEXT

    ----------------------------------------------------------------- **REVISED 04** HEWLETT-PACKARD COMPANY SECURITY BULLETIN: #0197, Originally issued: 01 July 2002 Last revision: 15 July 2002 -----------------------------------------------------------------

    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: A remotely exploitable vulnerability in handling of large data chunks in Apache-based web servers.

    **REVISED 04** PLATFORM: HP9000 Servers running HP-UX release 11.00, 11.04, 11.11 --->> 11.20, and 11.22 with the HP Apache product installed.

    DAMAGE: Increased privilege, DoS, or execution of arbitrary code.

    **REVISED 04** SOLUTION: For HP-UX releases 11.00, 11.11, 11.20 and 11.22 download new product bundles from the ftp site below. For only HP-UX release 11.04 (VV-OS): apply patches PHSS_27361 - for VV 4.6 release, PHSS_27371 - for VV 4.5 release.

    MANUAL ACTIONS: Install repaired binary.

    AVAILABILITY: Complete product bundles are available now for 11.00 and 11.11 are available for PA-RISC architecture platforms via ftp at hprc.external.hp.com (see below for account details). HP-UX 11.04 (VV-OS) patches are available now at itrc.hp.com

    CHANGE SUMMARY: Rev.01 - Do not install the bundle on NNM. Rev.02 - Added Virtualvault patches. Rev.03 - Re-released 1.3.26 bits due to an update deficiency and other minor problems. --->> Rev.04 - Added IPF versions. ------------------------------------------------------------------ A. Background The CERT Advisory CA-2002-17 regarding Apache affects the following HP product numbers:

    B9415AA Apache 1.3.x PA-RISC HP-UX releases 11.00 and 11.11 B9416AA Apache 2.x PA-RISC HP-UX releases 11.00 and 11.11 B9415AA Apache 1.3.x IPF HP-UX releases 11.20 and 11.22 B9416AA Apache 2.x IPF HP-UX releases 11.20 and 11.22

    HP Apache 1.3.26 (PA-RISC) installs into /opt/apache and /opt/tomcat disk space: 55-65 MB documents: /opt/apache/htdocs/doc

    HP Apache 2.0.39 (PA-RISC) installs into /opt/hpapache2 disk space: 80-90 MB documents: /opt/hpapache2/hp_apache_docs

    **REVISED 04** --->> HP Apache 1.3.26 (IPF) --->> installs into /opt/apache and /opt/tomcat --->> disk space: 65-75 MB --->> documents: /opt/apache/hp_apache_docs

    --->> HP Apache 2.0.39 (IPF) --->> installs into /opt/hpapache2 --->> disk space: 80-90 MB --->> documents: /opt/hpapache2/hp_apache_docs

    --->> Before updating, make sure to stop your previous HP Apache --->> binary. Otherwise, the previous binary will continue running, --->> preventing the new one from automatically starting, although --->> the installation would be successful.

    --->> The command to stop the HP Apache binary is: --->> For 1.3.26: --->> /opt/apache/bin/apachectl stop --->> For 2.0.39: --->> /opt/hpapache2/bin/apachectl stop

    HP Apache automatically starts upon installation if port 80 is available.

    Installation of this new version of HP Apache over an existing HP Apache installation is supported, while installation over a non-HP Apache is NOT supported.

    ==================================================================

    An advisory has been issued for HP Compaq systems. Please refer to HP Compaq SSRT2253, which says in part:

    CSWS Secure Web Server for HP Tru64 UNIX and HP OpenVMS "Potential Apache Web Server Chunk Handling Vulnerability"

    Patches are available for CSWS for HP Tru64 UNIX at: http://tru64unix.compaq.com/internet/download.htm#sws_v591

    Patches are available for CSWS for HP OpenVMS at: http://www.openvms.compaq.com/openvms/products/ips/apache/ +csws_patches.html

    B. Fixing the problem

    Note: OpenView Network Node Manager (NNM) customers should not install the ftp bundles. The version of Apache delivered with NNM is under investigation. This bulletin will be updated when more information is available.

    The Virtualvault product (also known as HP-UX 11.04) has patches for its 4.5 and 4.6 releases. The patch for VV 4.6 updates the outside web server to the Apache 1.3.26 version from the Apache 1.3.22 version shipped with the VV 4.6 release. For the VV 4.5 patch, the security fix from the Apache 1.3.26 version was backported to the 1.3.19 version per the Apache Group's patch for httpd 1.2.0-1.3.22.

    Both of these Virtualvault patches are available in itrc.hp.com. PHSS_27361 - for VV 4.6 release. PHSS_27371 - for VV 4.5 release.

    **REVISED 04**

    -->> The fixes for both PA-RISC and IPF (Intel Processor Family) -->> versions are in the form of new product bundles, instead of patches. An ftp server account has been created to enable timely downloading of these binaries.

    System: hprc.external.hp.com (192.170.19.51) Login: apache Password: apache

    FTP Access: hprc.external.hp.com/">ftp://apache:apachehprc.external.hp.com/ or: 192.170.19.51/">ftp://apache:apache192.170.19.51/

    NOTE: If your Apache 1.3.26.00.09 binary was downloaded since this Security Bulletin was orginally issued you may want to repeat that retrieval operation for the following fixes: 1) Saving of configuration files (i.e. httpd.conf) during an update. 2) Automatically starting HP Apache after a reboot. 3) Missing tuning notes

    This does not affect the security matter. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    The new Apache 1.3.26.01.00 bits (now labelled as .depot file for this version) is available now the directory Apache1.3.26.01.

    Retrieve the binaries and verify the correct size, cksum output and MD5 fingerprint.
