                        SCO Security Advisory

Subject:                UnixWare 7.1.1 Open UNIX 8.0.0 : Several vulnerabilities in XDR/RPC routines
Advisory number:        CSSA-2003-SCO.7
Issue date:             2003 March 19
Cross reference:
______________________________________________________________________________


1. Problem Description

         The implementation of xdr_array can be tricked into writing
         beyond the buffers it allocated when deserializing the XDR
         stream.

         The xdrmem_getbytes() function in the XDR library provided by
         Sun Microsystems contains an integer overflow that can lead
         to improperly sized dynamic memory allocation. 


2. Vulnerable Supported Versions

        System                          Binaries
        ----------------------------------------------------------------------
        UnixWare 7.1.1                  /etc/conf/pack.d/krpc/Driver_atup.o
                                        /etc/conf/pack.d/krpc/Driver_mp.o
                                        /usr/lib/tmp/libnsl.so

        Open UNIX 8.0.0                 /etc/conf/pack.d/krpc/Driver_atup.o
                                        /etc/conf/pack.d/krpc/Driver_mp.o
                                        /usr/lib/tmp/libnsl.so


3. Solution

        The proper solution is to install the latest packages.
