MANUAL ACTIONS: Non-HP-UX only


AVAILABILITY:  This bulletin will be revised when patches are
               available.


CHANGE SUMMARY: Rev.01 -  Patches are available for Solaris and
                          Linux agents of OVO-UX 7.X and 6.X.
                Rev.02 -  Preliminary fix available for OVPM,
                          OVOW, ITO5.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------
 A. Background


    The worm referred to as "Blaster" or "W32.Blaster.worm", may
    impact hp OpenView products running on Microsoft Windows,
    HP-UX, Solaris and Linux.


    More information about the worm can be found at:
    <http://www.microsoft.com/security/incident/blast.asp>


    It is important that you follow the instructions from
    Microsoft and apply appropriate patches to all servers
    running Microsoft Windows.


    As the worm attempts to find new systems to infect it can
    cause DCE to fail.  The HP-UX, Solaris, and Linux systems
    running DCE are not infected by the worm.  DCE is impacted as
    as side effect of the network traffic generated by the worm.


    The impact is that critical DCE daemons can abort.  These
    daemons and the OpenView software which depends on them
    would need to be restarted manually.


    This problem has been reported by CERT/cc:


        <http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/377804>


     CERT/cc reports that the vulnerability can be
     triggered by attempts to exploit Microsoft RPC
     vulnerabilities:


        <http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/568148>
        <http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/326746>



     AFFECTED VERSIONS


     The following is a list by HP-UX revision of
     affected filesets or patches and fix information.
     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.
