    Summary
    This advisory describes a vulnerability that affects Cisco products and
    applications that are installed on Microsoft operating systems incorporating
    the use of the Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and is based on the vulnerability
    of SQL Server 2000, not due to a defect of the Cisco product or application.
    A number of vulnerabilities that have been discovered that enable an
    attacker to execute arbitrary code or perform a denial of service against
    the server. These vulnerabilities were discovered and publicly announced by
    Microsoft in their Microsoft Security Bulletins MS02-039, MS02-056, and
    MS02-061.
    All Cisco products and applications that are using unpatched Microsoft SQL
    Server 2000 are considered vulnerable.
    This advisory is available at
    http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sa-20030126-ms02-061.shtml
    <http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sa-20030126-ms02-061.shtml> .
    Affected Products
    To determine if a product is vulnerable, review the list below. If the
    software versions or configuration information are provided, then only those
    combinations are vulnerable.
    Cisco CallManager 3.3(x)
    Cisco Unity 3.x, 4.x
    Cisco Intelligent Contact Management (ICM) 5.0
    Cisco E-Mail Manager (CeM)
    Cisco Building Broadband Service Manager 5.0, 5.1
    No other Cisco product is currently known to be affected by this
    vulnerability.
    Details
    Implementations of the Microsoft SQL Server 2000 are vulnerable to buffer
    overflows and denial of service attacks. These vulnerabilities can be
    exploited to execute arbitrary code on a computer system or to disrupt
    normal operation of the server.
    The vulnerabilities have been described in more detail at:
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS02-039.asp
    <http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS02-039.asp>
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS02-056.asp
    <http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS02-056.asp>
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS02-061.asp
    <http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS02-061.asp>
    Impact
    According to Microsoft, the vulnerabilities range from an attacker gaining
    additional privileges on a SQL server to gaining control over the SQL
    Server. Additionally the MS SQL "Sapphire" Worm is known to exploit this
    same vulnerability which can result in degraded network performance as the
    worm attempts to propagate.
    Software Versions and Fixes
    Cisco CallManager
    Customers running version 3.3(x) should install Cisco's cumulative SQL 2000
    Hotfix, SQL2K-MS02-061.exe, from the following location:

    <http://www.cisco.com/tacpage/sw-center/telephony/crypto/voice-apps/> .

    Cisco Building Broadband Service Manager
    This section will be updated within 24 hours with more details on patch
    availability.
    Obtaining Fixed Software
    Where Cisco provides the operating system bundled with the product, Cisco is
    offering free software upgrades to address these vulnerabilities for all
    affected customers. Customers may only install and expect support for the
    feature sets they have purchased.
    Customers with service contracts should contact their regular update
    channels to obtain any software release containing the feature sets they
    have purchased. For most customers with service contracts, this means that
    upgrades should be obtained through the Software Center on Cisco's Worldwide
    Web site at http://www.cisco.com/tacpage/SW-center/
    <http://www.cisco.com/tacpage/SW-center/> .
    Customers whose Cisco products are provided or maintained through a prior or
    existing agreement with third-party support organizations such as Cisco
    Partners, authorized resellers, or service providers should contact that
    support organization for assistance with obtaining the free software
    upgrade(s).
    Customers who purchased directly from Cisco but who do not hold a Cisco
    service contract, and customers who purchase through third party vendors but
    are unsuccessful at obtaining fixed software through their point of sale,
    should obtain fixed software by contacting the Cisco Technical Assistance
    Center (TAC) using the contact information listed below. In these cases,
    customers are entitled to obtain an upgrade to a later version of the same
    release or as indicated by the applicable row in the Software Versions and
    Fixes table (noted above).
    Cisco TAC contacts are as follows:
    +1 800 553 2447 (toll free from within North America)
    +1 408 526 7209 (toll call from anywhere in the world)
    e-mail: tac@cisco.com
    See http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml
    <http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml>  for
    additional TAC contact information, including special localized telephone
    numbers and instructions and e-mail addresses for use in various languages.
    Please have your product serial number available and give the URL of this
    notice as evidence of your entitlement to a free upgrade.
    Please do not contact either "psirt@cisco.com" or "security-alert@cisco.com"
    for software upgrades.
    Workarounds
    Cisco has published a companion document at
    http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sn-20030125-worm.shtml
    <http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sn-20030125-worm.shtml>  which
    provides network based workarounds to mitigate the effects of these
    vulnerabilities. Cisco also recommends applying the software based fixes to
    affected devices to completely resolve the vulnerability.
