SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1004149
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1004149
CVE Reference:   20020406-01-P   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Apr 25 2002
Impact:   Root access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 2.0
Description:   SGI reported a vulnerability in their IRISconsole management software. A remote user could gain privileged access on the system.

It is reported that, under certain conditions, a remote user can login to the "icadmin" account on the IRISconsole using the wrong password. This can reportedly lead to a privileged compromise of the IRISconsole environment.

SGI reports that the IRISconsole product is an optional product and is not installed by default on IRIX systems. To determine if IRISconsole is installed, execute the following command:

% versions -b | grep IRISconsole

If a line similar to that shown below is returned, then IRISconsole is installed:

I IRISconsole 09/27/1999 IRISconsole Administration Software 2.0

Impact:   A remote user could login to the "icadmin" administrator account using the wrong password.
Solution:   The vendor has released a patch (4038), available at:

http://support.sgi.com/ and
ftp://patches.sgi.com/support/free/security/patches/6.5/

This patch is for IRISconsole 2.0 and is not tied to a specific IRIX operating system release.

The actual patch will be a tar file containing the following files:
