Subject:                UnixWare 7.1.4 UnixWare 7.1.3 : ppp buffer overflow
Advisory number:        SCOSA-2005.41
Issue date:             2005 October 20
Cross reference:        sr894991 fz532994 erg712940 CAN-2005-2927
______________________________________________________________________________


1. Problem Description

        iDEFENSE has identified a Buffer Overflow vulnerability in
        SCO Unixware ppp prompt. Local exploitation of a buffer
        overflow vulnerability in the ppp binary, allows attackers 
        to gain root privileges. 

        This could lead to the execution of arbitrary code with root
        privileges, as ppp is setuid root by default. 

        The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) 
        has assigned the following name CAN-2005-2927 to this issue.

2. Vulnerable Supported Versions
