Subject: UnixWare 7.1.4 UnixWare 7.1.3 UnixWare 7.1.1 : RPCBind updated to prevent remote Denial of Service attack
Advisory number: SCOSA-2005.31
Issue date: 2005 July 27
Cross reference: sr894043 fz532477 erg712862 CAN-CAN-2005-2132

1. Problem Description

While testing UnixWare 7.x against CVE CAN-2001-1124, Yun
Jonglim noticed that UnixWare rpcbind exhibits unexpected
behaviour after successive attacks.

When the UnixWare 7.x version of the RPC portmapper(rpcbind)
receives an invalid portmap request from a remote (or local)
host, it falls into a denial of service state and cannot
respond. As a result, the RPC services will not operate
normally.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the following names for these
issues: CAN-CAN-2005-2132.

2. Vulnerable Supported Versions
