            Caldera International, Inc. Security Advisory

Subject:                OpenServer: IPFilter may incorrectly pass packets
Advisory number:        CSSA-2002-SCO.9

___________________________________________________________________________


1. Problem Description

        When matching a packet fragment, insufficient checks were
        performed to ensure the fragment is valid.  Malicious remote
        users may be able to bypass filtering rules, allowing them to
        potentially circumvent the firewall.


2. Vulnerable Supported Versions

        Operating System        Version         Affected Files
        ------------------------------------------------------------------
        OpenServer              <= 5.0.6a       /etc/ipnat
                                                /etc/ipfnat
                                                /etc/conf/pack.d/ipl/Driver.o
                                                /etc/ipmon
                                                /etc/ipfstat
                                                /etc/ipf
