			SCO Security Advisory

Subject:		OpenLinux: Sendmail prescan remotely exploitable vulnerability
Advisory number: 	CSSA-2003-036.0
Issue date: 		2003 November 17
Cross reference:	sr884726 fz528319 erg712432
______________________________________________________________________________


1. Problem Description

	There seems to be a remotely exploitable vulnerability affecting
	Sendmail up to including the latest version, 8.12.9. The problem
	lies in prescan() function. 

	CAN-2003-0694 The prescan function in Sendmail 8.12.9 allows 
	remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via buffer overflow 
	attacks, as demonstrated using the parseaddr function in 
	parseaddr.c.


2. Vulnerable Supported Versions

	System				Package
	----------------------------------------------------------------------
	OpenLinux 3.1.1 Server		prior to sendmail-8.11.6-15.i386.rpm
					prior to sendmail-cf-8.11.6-15.i386.rpm
					prior to sendmail-doc-8.11.6-15.i386.rpm

	OpenLinux 3.1.1 Workstation	prior to sendmail-8.11.6-15.i386.rpm
					prior to sendmail-cf-8.11.6-15.i386.rpm
					prior to sendmail-doc-8.11.6-15.i386.rpm


3. Solution

	The proper solution is to install the latest packages. Many
	customers find it easier to use the Caldera System Updater, called
	cupdate (or kcupdate under the KDE environment), to update these
	packages rather than downloading and installing them by hand.
