Hi all,

If this is out, I apologize.

Subject: Vunerability in HP sysdiag ???

Program and Systems that I did this on:
       The sysdiag program on
          HP 9000/700/HPUX9.05 (has PHSS_7587)
          HP 9000/800/HPUX9.04 (not sure of patch regarding diags)

Also confirmed on

        HP-UX viper B.10.10 A 9000/712 2003117870

To Prevent:
       For now, turn off the set uid on the programs involved.

Does anyone know of a valid reason why normal users should be allowed to
use sysdiag anyway?
