HP (Compaq) Tru64 UNIX Operating System 'ping' Utility May Let Local Users Create Denial of Service Conditions
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1005164
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1005164
CVE Reference:   GENERIC-MAP-NOMATCH   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Aug 31 2002
Impact:   Denial of service via local system
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): HP Tru64 UNIX 5.1a, 5.1, 5.0a, 4.0g, 4.0f
Description:   HP reported an unspecified vulnerability in the 'ping' utility on Tru64 UNIX. A local user could create denial of service conditions.

According to the report, there is a potential vulnerability in /usr/sbin/ping on HP's Tru64 UNIX operating system. HP did not indicate the nature of the vulnerability. No further details were provided.

[Editor's note: HP states that the vulnerability "may be in the form of local security domain risks." It is not clear what is meant by that statement.]

Impact:   A local user may be able to create denial of service conditions.
Solution:   HP has issued Early Release Patches (ERPs) for supported versions of HP Tru64 UNIX. HP has provided the following upgrade information:

"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.

NOTE: These ERPs supercede ERPs delivered with the release of SSRT2257 HP Tru64 UNIX /usr/bin/su buffer overflow potential exploit August 1, 2002. cross reference CERT VU#193347"

      SSRT2229 /usr/sbin/ping  (Severity - Medium)

             A potential security vulnerability has been
             reported within HP Tru64 UNIX /ur/sbin/ping,
             which could potentially result in denial
             of service (DoS). This may be in the form of
             local security domain risks.


      SSRT2275 HP Tru64 UNIX Buffer Overflows (Severity -
                                  see specific list below)

              Potential buffer overflows have been reported
              for HP Tru64 UNIX where, under certain
              circumstances,  a non-privileged user may gain
              unauthorized privileged access. This may be in
              the form of local and remote security domain
              risks.

   RESOLUTION

      Early Release Patches (ERPs) are now available for
      all supported versions of HP Tru64 UNIX. 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.


    NOTE: These ERPs supercede ERPs delivered with the release
    of SSRT2257 HP Tru64 UNIX /usr/bin/su buffer overflow

    Information on how to verify MD5 and SHA1 checksums is
    available at: http://www.support.compaq.com/patches/whats-new.shtml


    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 updates
    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.
