      Title:  Security Vulnerability in CIFS/9000 Server


The information in the following Security Bulletin should be acted upon
as soon as possible.  Hewlett-Packard Company will not be liable for any
consequences to any customer resulting from customer's failure to fully
implement instructions in this Security Bulletin as soon as possible.


PROBLEM:  CIFS/9000 Server (SAMBA) allows malicious local users
          to overwrite arbitrary files and devices.

PLATFORM: HP 9000 servers running CIFS/9000 Server version A.01.06,
          or lower.

DAMAGE:   Arbitrary files and devices can be overwritten.

SOLUTION: Install PHNE_24164

AVAILABILITY:  The patch is available now.
   A. Background
      Local HP-UX users must intentionally modify certain CIFS/9000
      Server resources in order to affect the damage (i.e., technically
      proficient and malicious).  Problem only occurs during printing
      operations; thus, CIFS/9000 Servers used only as file servers are
      not vulnerable.

   B. Recommended solution

      Install patch PHNE_24164 for HP-UX release 11.00 or 11.11.
