PLATFORM: HP-UX B.10.20, B.11.00, B.11.04, B.11.11, and B.11.22

**REVISED 08**
SOLUTION: Until patches are available manually install the
          appropriate fixed libraries.
 -->      Patches are now available for B.11.00 and B.11.11
 -->      which eliminate the manual installation of all
 -->      but libc.1.

          B.10.20 - PHCO_26158
 -->      B.11.00 - PHNE_28982
 -->      B.11.11 - PHNE_28983

MANUAL ACTIONS: Yes - NonUpdate
                Download and install the appropriate files.

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

CHANGE SUMMARY: Rev.01 - Corrected instructions for replacing
                         libc.1 on 11.00 and 11.11.
                         Added CERT CA-2003-10 reference.
                Rev.02 - Corrected instructions 10.20
                Rev.03 - Patches are available for 11.00 and 11.11
                         libc.1 must still be manually installed

 B. Recommended solution

**REVISED 08**
 -->Note: If the preliminary patches, PHNE_28929.depot or
 -->      PHNE_28930.depot have been installed, they must
 -->      be removed with swremove before installing the
 -->      general release patches PHNE_28982 (11.00) or
 -->      PHNE_28983 (11.11) or subsequent.

    Until patches are released, download and manually install
    the appropriate libraries and preliminary patches.

      For B.11.04
      ====================================
      #DIR=[path to new files]
      #cd /usr/lib

      #cp $DIR/libnsl.1.32_11.00 libnsl.1.new
      #cp $DIR/libnsl.a.32_11.00 libnsl.a.new
      #cp $DIR/libc.1 libc.1.new

      #chmod 555 libnsl.1.new
      #chmod 444 libnsl.a.new
      #chmod 555 libc.1.new

      #chown bin:bin libnsl.1.new
      #chown bin:bin libnsl.a.new
      #chown bin:bin libc.1.new

      #mv libnsl.1 libnsl.1.orig
      #mv libnsl.a libnsl.a.orig
      #mv libc.1 libc.1.orig

      #mv libnsl.1.new libnsl.1
      #mv libnsl.a.new libnsl.a
      #mv libc.1.new libc.1

      #mv libnsl.a libnsl.a.orig

      #mv libnsl.1.new libnsl.1
      #mv libnsl.a.new libnsl.a

      After this, any applications that use libnsl.1 must be
      restarted.  Any applications that use libnsl.a must
      be relinked and restarted.
      Any applications that use libc.1 must be restarted.

      Rebooting is the recommended way to restart the applications
      using libnsl.1 or libc.1.

      For B.11.00 and B.11.11
      ====================================
**REVISED 07**
 -->  Remove the preliminary patches with swremove
 -->  if they are on the system:

      PHNE_28929.depot          #B.11.00
      PHNE_28930.depot          #B.11.11

 -->  Install the appropriate patch:

 -->  PHNE_28982                #B.11.00
 -->  PHNE_28983                #B.11.11

      Install libc.1 as follows:

      #DIR=[path to new files]
      #cd /usr/lib
      #cp $DIR/libc.1 libc.1.new
      #chmod 555 libc.1.new
      #chown bin:bin libc.1.new
      #mv libc.1 libc.1.orig
      #mv libc.1.new libc.1

      After this, any applications that use libnsl.1 must be
      restarted.  Any applications that use libnsl.a must
      be relinked and restarted.

      Rebooting is the recommended way to restart the applications
      using libnsl.1 or libc.1.


      For B.11.22 IA
      ====================================
      #DIR=[path to new files]
      #cd /usr/lib/hpux32
      #cp $DIR/libnsl.so.1.32_11.22.IA libnsl.so.1.new
      #chmod 555 libnsl.so.1.new
      #chown bin:bin libnsl.so.1.new
      #mv libnsl.so.1 libnsl.so.1.orig
      #mv libnsl.so.1.new libnsl.so.1

      #cd /usr/lib
      #cp $DIR/libc.1 libc.1.new
      #chmod 555 libc.1.new
      #chown bin:bin libc.1.new
      #mv libc.1 libc.1.orig
      #mv libc.1.new libc.1

      #cd /usr/lib/hpux64
      #cp $DIR/libnsl.so.1.64_11.22.IA libnsl.so.1.new
      #chmod 555 libnsl.so.1.new
      #chown bin:bin libnsl.so.1.new
      #mv libnsl.so.1 libnsl.so.1.orig
      #mv libnsl.so.1.new libnsl.so.1

      After this, any applications that use libnsl.so.1 must be
      restarted.

      Rebooting is the recommended way to restart the applications
      using libnsl.1 or libc.1.

    To -review- bulletins already released, select the link
    (in the middle column) for the appropriate digest.

    NOTE: Using your itrc account security bulletins can be
          found here:

    To -gain access- to the Security Patch Matrix, select
    the link for "The Security Bulletins Archive".  (near the
    bottom of the page)  Once in the archive the third link is
    to the current Security Patch Matrix. Updated daily, this
    matrix categorizes security patches by platform/OS release,
    and by bulletin topic.  Security Patch Check completely
    automates the process of reviewing the patch matrix for
    11.XX systems.  Please note that installing the patches
    listed in the Security Patch Matrix will completely
    implement a security bulletin _only_ if the MANUAL ACTIONS
    field specifies "No."

    The Security Patch Check tool can verify that a security
    bulletin has been implemented on HP-UX 11.XX systems providing
    that the fix is completely implemented in a patch with no
    manual actions required.  The Security Patch Check tool cannot
    verify fixes implemented via a product upgrade.

    For information on the Security Patch Check tool, see:
    http://www.software.hp.com/cgi-bin/swdepot_parser.cgi/cgi/
    displayProductInfo.pl?productNumber=B6834AA
