Hewlett Packard HPSBUX0308-274: Openview DCE security vulnerability

by Nikola Strahija on August 26th, 2003 The worm referred to as "Blaster" or "W32.Blaster.worm", may impact hp OpenView products running on Microsoft Windows, HP-UX, Solaris and Linux. As the worm attempts to find new systems to infect it can cause DCE to fail. The HP-UX, Solaris, and Linux systems running DCE are not infected by the worm. DCE is impacted as a side effect of the network traffic generated by the worm.

CHANGE SUMMARY: Rev.01 - Patches are available for Solaris and
Linux agents of OVO-UX 7.X and 6.X.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
A. Background

The worm referred to as "Blaster" or "W32.Blaster.worm", may
impact hp OpenView products running on Microsoft Windows,
HP-UX, Solaris and Linux.

More information about the worm can be found at:


It is important that you follow the instructions from
Microsoft and apply appropriate patches to all servers
running Microsoft Windows.

As the worm attempts to find new systems to infect it can
cause DCE to fail. The HP-UX, Solaris, and Linux systems
running DCE are not infected by the worm. DCE is impacted as
as side effect of the network traffic generated by the worm.

The impact is that critical DCE daemons can abort. These
daemons and the OpenView software which depends on them
would need to be restarted manually.

This problem has been reported by CERT/cc:



CERT/cc reports that the vulnerability can be
triggered by attempts to exploit Microsoft RPC
vulnerabilities:





--> AFFECTED VERSIONS

The following is a list by HP-UX revision of
affected filesets or patches and fix information.
