                        SCO Security Advisory

Subject:                Linux: inn format string and insecure open vulnerabilities
Advisory number:        CSSA-2002-038.0
Issue date:             2002 October 24
Cross reference:

1. Problem Description

        There are several format string coding bugs as well as unsecure
        open() calls in the inn program.

2. Vulnerable Supported Versions

        System                          Package

        OpenLinux 3.1.1 Server          prior to inn-2.2.3-13.i386.rpm

        OpenLinux 3.1 Server            prior to inn-2.2.3-13.i386.rpm

3. Solution

        The proper solution is to install the latest packages. Many
        customers find it easier to use the Caldera System Updater, called
        cupdate (or kcupdate under the KDE environment), to update these
        packages rather than downloading and installing them by hand.
