A potential security vulnerability has been identified in HP-UX running the Ignite-UX or the DynRootDisk (DRD) get_system_info command. The vulnerable command can change system networking parameters without notification.

References: none 

SUPPORTED SOFTWARE VERSIONS*: ONLY impacted versions are listed.
HP-UX B.11.11, B.11.23, B.11.31 running the Ignite-UX vC.7.0, vC.7.1, vC.7.2, vC.7.3 or the DynRootDisk (DRD) vA., vA., vA., vA. get_system_info command.


The get_system_info command is executed by the following commands: 

To determine if an HP-UX system has an affected version, search the output of "swlist -a revision -l fileset" for one of the filesets listed below. For affected systems verify that the recommended action has been taken. 


HP-UX B.11.11 
HP-UX B.11.23 
HP-UX B.11.31 
action: use the script from the Resolution to work around the vulnerability 

HP-UX B.11.23 
HP-UX B.11.31

Until an update is available, HP has made the following procedure available to resolve the issue. 

1. Download the script "get_system_info.wrapper" from the following ftp site: 

2 .Verify the cksum or md5 sum: 
cksum: 3713651406 5189 get_system_info.wrapper 
MD5 (get_system_info.wrapper) = 99d725b5b93115ae418ad6ec1b5ab60d 

3. As root, copy the script into a secure directory.

4. As root, run the script. The script will display the files it is replacing. 

For example: 

Replacing /opt/ignite/lbin/get_system_info with $secure_directory/get_system_info.wrapper 
Replacing /opt/drd/lbin/get_system_info with $secure_directory/get_system_info.wrapper 

where $secure_directory is the path to the secure directory containing the script. 

5. The script must be executed whenever a vulnerable version of the fileset Ignite-UX.MGMT-TOOLS or the fileset DRD.DRD-RUN is reinstalled.

MANUAL ACTIONS: Yes - NonUpdate
