o Security Bulletin Digest Split
   ------------------------------

   The security bulletins digest has been split into multiple digests
   based on the operating system (HP-UX, MPE/iX, and HP Secure OS
   Software for Linux). You will continue to receive all security
   bulletin digests unless you choose to update your subscriptions.
   
   To update your subscriptions, use your browser to access the
   IT Resource Center on the World Wide Web at:

     http://www.itresourcecenter.hp.com/

   Under the Maintenance and Support Menu, click on the "more..." link.
   Then use the 'login' link at the left side of the screen to login
   using your IT Resource Center User ID and Password.

   Under the notifications section (near the bottom of the page), select
   Support Information Digests.

   To subscribe or unsubscribe to a specific security bulletin digest,
   select or unselect the checkbox beside it. Then click the

     HEWLETT-PACKARD COMPANY SECURITY ADVISORY: #0185,
     Originally issued: 12 Feb. 2002
 -----------------------------------------------------------------

The information in the following Security Advisory 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 Advisory as
soon as possible.

 ------------------------------------------------------------------
PROBLEM: Security vulnerability when managing HP Switching
          Hubs with a web browser.

PLATFORM: HP AdvanceStack J3200A, J3201A, J3202A, J3203A, J3204A,
          J3205A, J3210A with firmware version A.03.02.

DAMAGE: Gain elevated privileges

SOLUTION: Until a fix is available, work around the problem as
          documented below.

MANUAL ACTIONS: Disable web access or remove the management IP
          address.

AVAILABILITY: This advisory will be updated when a fix is
          available.

 ------------------------------------------------------------------
A. Background
    The following are vulnerable:

    J3210A -- HP AdvanceStack 10BT Management Pack Module for use
              with HP AdvanceStack Switching Hubs
    J3200A -- HP Advancestack 10Base-T S Hub-12R*
    J3201A -- HP AdvanceStack 10BT-S Hub-12R w/Mgmt
    J3202A -- HP AdvanceStack 10Base-T S Hub-24R*
    J3203A -- HP AdvanceStack 10BT-S Hub-24R w/Mgmt
    J3204A -- HP AdvanceStack 10Base-T S Hub-24T*
    J3205A -- HP AdvanceStack 10BT-S Hub-24T w/Mgmt
  * This product is not affected unless J3210A is installed within.

    The vulnerable firmware version is A.03.02.

B. Fixing the problem
   There are two ways to work around the problem:

   1. Disable web access using telnet or RS-232 interface
      a. Telnet or console into switch
      b. Type "me" for menu
      c. Hit "2" for Management Access Configuration
      d. Hit "6" for Web enable/disable (verify it is disabled)

   2. Remove the management IP address
      a. Telnet or console into switch
      b. Type "me" for menu
      c. Hit "2" for Management Access Configuration
      d. Hit "1" for IP Configuration
      e. Hit "Y" to Change the IP configuration
      f. Choose "D" to disable segment
      g. Choose "D" to Disable (and verify it is disabled)
      (Repeat F & G for each IP assigned-segment as necessary.)

    NOTE! Disabling IP while connected via telnet will disconnect
          your session.

C. Recommended solution
   Until a fix is available work around the problem by either
   disabling web access or removing the management IP address.

      Title: Sec. Vulnerability in SNMP

-----------------------------------------------------------------
     HEWLETT-PACKARD COMPANY SECURITY BULLETIN: #0184,
     Originally issued: 12 Feb. 2002
 -----------------------------------------------------------------

The information in the following Security Bulletin should be acted
upon as soon as possible. Hewlett-Packard Company will not be

MANUAL ACTIONS: Upgrade or workaround action per below.

AVAILABILITY: Patches for some affected systems are available now.

 ------------------------------------------------------------------

 A. Background
    CERT has issued an advisory:
    CERT Advisory CA-2002-03 Multiple Vulnerabilities in Many
    Implementations of the Simple Network Management Protocol
    (SNMPv1) containing information about the vulnerabilities.

    Hewlett-Packard Company will revise this bulletin as new
    information becomes available.

    ---------------------------------------------------------
    hp procurve switch 2524

    J3263A 300X 10/100
    J3264A 500X Token Ring
    J3265A 500X 10/100

     ----------------------------------------------------------
     HP-UX Systems running snmpd or OPENVIEW
     ----------------------------------------------------------
     Any HP-UX 10.X or 11.X system running snmpd or snmpdm is
     vulnerable. To determine if your HP-UX system has snmpd
     or snmpdm installed:

       swlist -l file | grep snmpd

B. Fixing the problem
   Install the appropriate patch or firmware revision or work
   around problem as detailed below.

C. Recommended solution
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    hp procurve switch 2524
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    No known workaround. Patches are in process.

    ---------------------------------------------------------
    NNM (Network Node Manager)
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Disable snmpd and snmpdm as detailed for HP-UX below.
    Patches are in process.

    ---------------------------------------------------------
    MC/ServiceGuard
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Concerning the impact of disabling the SNMP agent on nodes
    in MC/ServiceGuard or ServiceGuard OPS Edition clusters:

    If SNMP is disabled on nodes running in MC/ServiceGuard
    or ServiceGuard OPS Edition clusters, it will no longer be
    possible for cluster monitoring applications that use the
    cluster SNMP MIB to obtain the correct status for the cluster.

    Examples of such applications are ClusterView, ClusterView Plus
    or EMS High Availability Monitors, which all receive
    cluster-related SNMP information from the cluster nodes.

    This means that these applications will no longer display the
    correct status for the cluster, including the cluster starting
    or halting, nodes leaving or joining the cluster, and application
    packages starting up or halting in the cluster.

      NOTE: All supported versions of MC/ServiceGuard as well as
             ServiceGuard OPS Edition are affected by this issue.

             The ServiceGuard Manager product does not use the cluster
             SNMP MIB, and therefore is _NOT_ affected by the
             disabling of SNMP on cluster nodes.

    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Event Monitoring System (EMS)
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    It should also be noted that if an MC/ServiceGuard or ServiceGuard
    OPS Edition application package has package resources defined
    that use EMS High Availability Monitors, then those package
    resources will no longer contain the current status for the
    cluster. It may be necessary to remove the definition for these
    package resources in order to allow continued operation of the
    package after SNMP has been disabled.

    ---------------------------------------------------------
    JetDirect Firmware (older versions only)
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Update firmware to X.08.32(or higher) or X.21.00(or higher)
    as applicable.

    ----------------------------------------------------------
    HP-UX Systems running snmpd or OPENVIEW
    ----------------------------------------------------------
    The following patches are available now:

     PHSS_26137 s700_800 HP-UX 10.20 OV EMANATE14.2 Agent$
     PHSS_26138 s700_800 HP-UX 11.X OV EMANATE14.2 Agent$
     PSOV_03087 Solaris 2.X EMANATE Release 14.2 $

    All three patches are available from:

     http://support.openview.hp.com/cpe/patches/

    In addition PHSS_26137 and PHSS_26138 will soon be available
    from:

     http://itrc.hp.com

  ============================================================
   NOTE: The patches are labeled OV (Open View). However, the
   patches are also applicable to systems that are _NOT_
   running Open View.
  ============================================================

    Workaround for HP-UX Systems:

    If a patch is not available for your platform or you cannot
    install an available patch, snmpd and snmpdm can be disabled
    by removing their entries from /etc/services and removing the
    execute permissions from /usr/sbin/snmpd and /usr/sbin/snmpdm.
