    Early Release Patches (ERPs) are now available for all supported
    versions of HP Tru64 UNIX/TruCluster Server that provide a solution
    to this potential vulnerability. The ERP kits use dupatch to install
    and will not install over any Customer Specific Patches (CSPs) which
    have file intersections with the ERPs. Contact your normal support
    channel and request HP Tru64 services elevate a case to Support
    Engineering if a CSP must be merged with one of the ERPs. Please
    review the README file for each patch prior to installation.

    After completing the update, HP and Compaq strongly recommend that you
    perform an immediate backup of the system disk so that any subsequent
    restore operations begin with updated software. Otherwise, the updated
    must be re-applied after a future restore operation. Also, if at some
    future time the system is upgraded to a later patch release or version
    release, reinstall the appropriate ERP.
