                        SCO Security Advisory

Subject:                Linux: buffer overflow in nss_ldap DNS SRV
Advisory number:        CSSA-2002-058.0
Issue date:             2002 December 10
Cross reference:

1. Problem Description

        A buffer overflow in the DNS SRV code for nss_ldap allows remote
        attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute
        arbitrary code.

2. Vulnerable Supported Versions

        System                          Package

        OpenLinux 3.1.1 Server          prior to nss_ldap-172-5.i386.rpm

        OpenLinux 3.1.1 Workstation     prior to nss_ldap-172-5.i386.rpm

        OpenLinux 3.1 Server            prior to nss_ldap-172-5.i386.rpm

        OpenLinux 3.1 Workstation       prior to nss_ldap-172-5.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.
