Not Affected

Vendor Statement

Computer Associates has completed a review of all Unicenter functions and processing related to SNMP traps as indicated by the advisory. Unicenter is not subject to the same vulnerabilities as demonstrated by the SNMP trap managers identified by CERT (i.e., OpenView and NetView). CA Unicenter does not formulate commands determined through trap data parsing. Unicenter implements this technology using different methods and thereby avoids this exposure. Computer Associates maintains strong relationships with these vendors and recommends that clients running any environments containing either of these products visit the website URLs specifically identified by the CERT Coordination Center.
