Subject:                OpenServer 5.0.6 OpenServer 5.0.7 : enable command line buffer overflows
Advisory number:        SCOSA-2005.13
Issue date:             2005 February 07
Cross reference:        sr875254 fz527477 erg712243 CAN-2004-1131
______________________________________________________________________________


1. Problem Description

        Davide Del Vecchio reported a buffer overflow in HP-UX that
        affected the disable command. This caused us to take a
        closer look at the enable and disable commands in SCO
        OpenServer. 

        The system is designed to allow an administrator to give out 
        subsystem privileges. If a user has been given the "lp" 
        privilege, he could run enable/disable and possably
        gain root privileges. Regular users can't run enable and
        disable. 

        The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) 
        has assigned the name CAN-2004-1131 to this issue.
