Subject:                UnixWare 7.1.4 UnixWare 7.1.3 UnixWare 7.1.1 : RPCBind updated to prevent remote Denial of 
Service attack
Advisory number:        SCOSA-2005.31
Issue date:             2005 July 27
Cross reference:        sr894043 fz532477 erg712862 CAN-CAN-2005-2132
______________________________________________________________________________


1. Problem Description

        While testing UnixWare 7.x against CVE CAN-2001-1124, Yun
        Jonglim noticed that UnixWare rpcbind exhibits unexpected
        behaviour after successive attacks.

        When the UnixWare 7.x version of the RPC portmapper(rpcbind)
        receives an invalid portmap request from a remote (or local)
        host, it falls into a denial of service state and cannot
        respond. As a result, the RPC services will not operate
        normally.

        The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
        (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the following names for these
        issues: CAN-CAN-2005-2132.
