Unknown. If you are the vendor named above, please contact us to update your status.
Cray, Inc. does include ToolTalk within the CrayTools product. However, rpc.ttdbserverd is not turned on or used by any Cray provided application. Since a site may have turned this on for their own use, they can always remove the binary /opt/ctl/bin/rpc.ttdbserverd if they are concerned.
The vendor has not provided us with any further information regarding this vulnerability.
Given the history of CDE source code, it is likely that the CrayTools ToolTalk RPC database server is vulnerable.
If you have feedback, comments, or additional information about this vulnerability, please send us email.
