Early Release Patches (ERPs) are now available for all supported
versions of HP Tru64 UNIX/TruCluster Server that provide a solution
to this potential vulnerability. The ERP kits use dupatch to install
and will not  install over any Customer Specific Patches (CSPs) which
have file intersections with the ERPs.  Contact your normal support
channel and request HP Tru64 services elevate a case to Support
Engineering if a CSP must be merged with one of the ERPs. Please
review the README file for each patch prior to installation.
