(HP Issues Fix for MPE/iX) Many Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Implementations Allow Remote Users to Deny Service or Obtain Access to the System
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1004566
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1004566
CVE Reference:   CVE-2002-0012, CVE-2002-0013   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jun 18 2002
Impact:   Denial of service via network, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Root access via network, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  

Description:   CERT reported that the University of Oulu (Finland) has discovered vulnerabilities in many vendor implementations of the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) version 1.

The Oulu University Secure Programming Group (OUSPG, http://www.ee.oulu.fi/research/ouspg/) reports that there are numerous vulnerabilities in SNMPv1 implementations from many different vendors. A remote user can reportedly cause denial of service attacks or gain elevated privileges on the system. The extent of the vulnerabilities depends on the specific vendor implementation.

HP reports that the MPE/iX operating system is affected. A remote user could cause denial of service conditions.

Impact:   A remote user may be able to cause denial of service conditions.
Solution:   The vendor has released a fix for HP MPE/iX. Install appropriate MPE/iX SNMP patch and two dependent patches.

6.0: SNMGDL9A - requires dependent patches:
NMSGDF2A or later NMS patch (NMSGDF2A is GR)
NMCGDF3A or later NMC patch (NMCGDM4A is GR)

6.5: SNMGDM0A - requires dependent patches:
NMSGDD3A or later NMS patch (NMSGDD3A is GR)
NMCGDD2A or later NMC patch (NMCGDM5A is GR)

7.0: SNMGDM1A - requires dependent patches:
NMSGDD6A or later NMS patch (NMSGDD6A is GR)
NMCGDD5A or later NMC patch (NMCGDD5A is GR)

These patches are available at:

http://itrc.hp.com

Cause:   Access control error, Boundary error, Input validation error
Underlying OS:  MPE/iX (HP)
Underlying OS Comments:  6.0, 6.5, 7.0
