                Caldera International, Inc.  Security Advisory

Subject:                OpenServer 5.0.5 OpenServer 5.0.6 : snmpd denial-of-service vulnerabilities.
Advisory number:        CSSA-2002-SCO.25

1. Problem Description

        The University of Oulu (Finland) wrote approximately 53000
        tests for snmpd error conditions. For OpenServer, many of
        the tests caused the snmp daemon to grow in size. This could
        lead to denial-of-service attacks.


2. Vulnerable Supported Versions

        System                          Binaries
        ----------------------------------------------------------------------
        OpenServer 5.0.5                /usr/lib/libsnmp.so.1.Z
        OpenServer 5.0.6                /usr/lib/libsnmp.so.1.Z
