1. Bulletins Topics

Sun announces the release of patches for Solaris 2.5.1, 2.5, and 2.4
(SunOS 5.5.1, 5.5, and 5.4) which relate to a vulnerability in
nis_cachemgr.

Sun estimates that the release of a patch for Solaris 2.3 (SunOS 5.3)
that relate to the same vulnerability will be available within 4 weeks
of the date of this bulletin.

Sun strongly recommends that you install the patches listed in section 4
immediately on systems running SunOS 5.5.1, 5.5, and 5.4 which use
NIS+.

2. Who is Affected

Vulnerable: SunOS versions 5.5.1, 5.5.1_x86, 5.5, 5.5_x86,
5.4, 5.4_x86, 5.3

Not vulnerable: All other supported versions of SunOS.

The vulnerability does not exist in Solaris 2.6.

3. Understanding the Vulnerability

NIS+ clients run nis_cachemgr, a NIS+ utility that caches location
information about NIS+ servers. This vulnerability, if exploited, allows
attackers to add bogus directory objects to the global shared cache, in
effect specifying rogue NIS+ servers that are under their control.

4. List of Patches

The vulnerability in nis_cachemgr is fixed by the following patches:

OS version Patch ID
__________ ________
SunOS 5.5.1 103612-33
