POTENTIAL SECURITY IMPACT:
Remote Denial of Service (DoS)
HP Software Security Response Team
A potential security vulnerability has been identified with WBEM
Services on HP-UX and RedHat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) using OpenSSL
and SSL/TLS where the vulnerability could be exploited remotely to
create a Denial of Service (DoS).
CAN 2004-079, CAN-2004-0112
SUPPORTED SOFTWARE VERSIONS*: ONLY impacted versions are listed.
HP9000 Servers running HP-UX release B.11.00, B.11.11 and B.11.23
with versions of the following products are affected:
- HP WBEM Services for HP-UX, A.01.05.08 or earlier (B8465BA).
Version A.01.05.08 of this product includes OpenSSL 0.9.6k.
- HP WBEM Services for HP-UX, A.02.00.00 (B8465BA). This product
includes OpenSSL 0.9.6k.
RedHat Enterprise Linux, RHEL AS 2.1 with the following HP product
numbers/versions are affected:
- HP WBEM Services for Linux, A.02.00.01
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
<HTTP://cve.mitre.org has identified potential vulnerabilities in
OpenSSL (CAN-2004-079, CAN-2004-0112).
1. The do_change_cipher_spec function in OpenSSL allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service via a crafted SSL/TLS
handshake that triggers a null dereference.
2. The SSL/TLS handshaking, when using Kerberos ciphersuites, does
not properly check the length of Kerberos tickets during a
handshake, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service via a crafted SSL/TLS handshake that causes an
The following HP product numbers/versions are afected on HP-UX
releases B.11.00, B.11.11, and B.11.23:
- HP WBEM Services for HP-UX, A.01.05.08 or earlier (B8465BA)
- HP WBEM Services for HP-UX, A.02.00.00 (B8465BA)
The following HP product numbers/versions are affected on
RHEL AS 2.1:
- HP WBEM Services for Linux, A.02.00.01
Note: To determine if a system has an affected version, search
the output of "swlist -a revision -l fileset" for an
affected fileset or patch. Then determine if a fixed
revision or applicable patch is installed.
action: install revision A.01.05.09 or subsequent
action: install revision A.02.00.02 or subsequent
END AFFECTED VERSIONS
On Linux, to determine if a system has an affected
version, search the output of "rpm -qa | grep wbem"
for an affected fileset or patch, then determine if a
fixed revision or applicable patch is installed.
The OpenSSL group has released patches to fix the vulnerabilities
in OpenSSL 0.9.7d. For customers using HP WBEM Services, HP has
incorporated OpenSSL 0.9.7d in the following product:
-> - HP WBEM Services for HP-UX B.11.00, A.01.05.09

A.02.00.02 or subsequent,
- HP WBEM Services for Linux, A.02.00.02 or subsequent.
To fix the problem:
1. Determine the affected version.
-> 2. Download and verify the md5 sum from the Electronic
Delivery Receipt for HP-UX:
3. Install the appropriate HP WBEM Services depot.
-> 4. Download and verify the md5 sum from the Electronic
Delivery Receipt for Linux:
Check for HP WBEM Services Installation
