            Caldera International, Inc. Security Advisory

Subject:                Open UNIX, UnixWare 7: snmpd memory fault vulnerabilities
Advisory number:        CSSA-2002-SCO.4
Issue date:             2002 February 12
Cross reference:
___________________________________________________________________________


1. Problem Description
        
        The University of Oulu (Finland) wrote approximately 53000
        tests for snmpd error conditions.  For Open UNIX and UnixWare,
        94 of the tests caused snmpd to memory fault. This could lead
        to denial-of-service attacks, or possible local and remote
        root acquisition.


2. Vulnerable Supported Versions

        Operating System        Version         Affected Files
        ------------------------------------------------------------------
        Open UNIX               8.0.0           /usr/lib/libsnmp.so
        UnixWare 7              7.1.1           /usr/lib/libsnmp.so
        UnixWare 7              7.1.0           /usr/lib/libsnmp.so


3. Workaround

        If snmp is not a needed service:

        add an 'exit 0' statement (without the single quotes) as the
        first executable line of /etc/rc2.d/S73snmp,

                -or-

        remove the execute bits from the in.snmpd binary,

                # chmod 0 /usr/sbin/in.snmpd
