Vendor Statement

SOURCE: Compaq Computer Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hewlett-Packard Company and Hewlett-Packard Company HP Services Software Security Response Team CROSS REFERENCE: SSRT2251 At this time Compaq does have solutions in final testing and will publish HP Tru64 UNIX security bulletin (SSRT2251) with patch information as soon as testing has completed and kits are available from the support ftp web site. A recommended workaround however is to disable rpc.ttdbserver until solutions are available. This should only create a potential problem for public software packages applications that use the RPC-based ToolTalk database server. This step should be evaluated against the risks identified, your security measures environment, and potential impact of other products that may use the ToolTalk database server. To disable rpc.ttdbserverd: Comment out the following line in /etc/inetd.conf: rpc.ttdbserverd stream tcp swait root /usr/dt/bin/rpc.ttdbserverd rpc.ttdbserverd Force inetd to re-read the configuration file by executing the inetd -h command. Note: The internet daemon should kill the currently running rpc.ttdbserver. If not, manually kill any existing rpc.ttdbserverd process.

Vendor Information

The vendor has not provided us with any further information regarding this vulnerability.

Addendum

Compaq (Hewlett-Packard) has released a security bulletin (SRB0039W/SSRT2251) that addresses VU#299816 and other vulnerabilities.

Cray Inc.

Notified:  June 12, 2002 Updated: July 11, 2002

Status

  Unknown

Vendor Statement

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.

Vendor Information

The vendor has not provided us with any further information regarding this vulnerability.

Addendum

Given the history of CDE source code, it is likely that the CrayTools ToolTalk RPC database server is vulnerable.

**REVISED 02** HEWLETT-PACKARD COMPANY SECURITY BULLETIN: HPSBUX0207-199 Originally issued: 12 July 2002 Last revision: 14 Aug 2002 SSRT2274 Sec. Vulnerability in rpc.ttdbserver The information in the following Security Bulletin should be acted upon as soon as possible. Hewlett-Packard Company will not be liable for any consequences to any customer resulting from customer's failure to fully implement instructions in this Security Bulletin as soon as possible. PROBLEM: Buffer overflow in rpc.ttdbserver PLATFORM: HP9000 Series 700/800 running HP-UX releases 10.10, 10.20, 10.24, 11.00, 11.04, and 11.11. DAMAGE: Potential unauthorized access, increased privileges. SOLUTION: Until patches are available, manually install a replacement rpc.ttdbserver. MANUAL ACTIONS: Install replacement rpc.ttdbserver. AVAILABILITY: The replacement rpc.ttdbserver files are available now. CHANGE SUMMARY: Added CA-2002-26 information **REVISED 02** A. Background -->>Buffer overflows in rpc.ttdbserver has been reported by CERT -->>in CA-2002-20 and CA-2002-26. The potential exists to exploit -->>these overflows to gain unauthorized access. B. Recommended solution Until patches are available, install the appropriate file to replace rpc.ttdbserver. Note: The 10.20 file should be used for 10.24. The 11.00 file should be used for 11.04. On 10.24 and 11.04 (VVOS) rpc.ttdbserver is disabled by default. **REVISED 02** -->> 1. Download rpc.ttdbserver.2.tar.gz from the ftp site. This file is temporary and will be deleted when patches are available from the standard HP web sites, including itrc.hp.com. System: hprc.external.hp.com (192.170.19.51) Login: ttdb1 Password: ttdb1 FTP Access: ftp://ttdb1:ttdb1@hprc.external.hp.com/ or: ftp://ttdb1:ttdb1@192.170.19.51/ -->> file: rpc.ttdbserver.2.tar.gz Note: There is an ftp defect in IE5 that may result in a browser hang. To work around this: - Select Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced - Un-check the option: [ ] Enable folder view for FTP sites **REVISED 02** -->> 2. Copy the rpc.ttdbserver.2.tar.gz file to a protected directory and unpack it. If you wish to verify the md5 sum before unpacking the rpc.ttdbserver.tar.gz file, please refer to: HPSBUX9408-016 Patch sums and the MD5 program -->> The md5 sum for rpc.ttdbserver.2.tar.gz is: -->> MD5 (rpc.ttdbserver.2.tar.gz) = -->> e6af458213a9834146f716c9df7f1aaf 3. Install the new rpc.ttdbserver file using the install_rpc.ttdbserver script or some similar procedure. The install_rpc.ttdbserver script is included in -->> rpc.ttdbserver.2.tar.gz. For example on a 10.20 system: ./install_rpc.ttdbserver rpc.ttdbserver.1020 4.
