			SCO Security Advisory

Subject:		Linux: Preboot eXecution Environment (PXE) server denial-of-service attacks 
Advisory number: 	CSSA-2002-044.0
Issue date: 		2002 November 11
Cross reference:
______________________________________________________________________________


1. Problem Description

	The PXE server can be crashed by using corrupt DHCP packets.
	This bug could be used to cause a denial-of-service attack.


2. Vulnerable Supported Versions

	System				Package
	----------------------------------------------------------------------

	OpenLinux 3.1.1 Server		prior to pxe-0.1-33.i386.rpm

	OpenLinux 3.1.1 Workstation	prior to pxe-0.1-33.i386.rpm

	OpenLinux 3.1 Server		prior to pxe-0.1-33.i386.rpm

	OpenLinux 3.1 Workstation	prior to pxe-0.1-33.i386.rpm


3. Solution

	The proper solution is to install the latest packages. Many
	customers find it easier to use the Caldera System Updater, called
	cupdate (or kcupdate under the KDE environment), to update these
	packages rather than downloading and installing them by hand.
