This is about the earliest I've seen you guys get out a working "patch" on a open source vulnerability.

Send thanks up the ladder.

Re: SSRT3469 Potential Security Vulnerability in sendmail

I'm personally wondering why the patch wasn't made available yesterday at the same time as the announcement, as it was by other vendors. Not point a finger of blame here, just wondering if there's a lack of communication somewhere that needs improvement.

Perhaps the Sendmail company didn't inform HP, as it apparently did other vendors?

Re: SSRT3469 Potential Security Vulnerability in sendmail

Berlene,

I'm confused about which version I should download.
Your instructions read:
For HP-UX 11.00: sendmail.811.11.00.gz
sendmail.893.11.00.gz
For HP-UX 11.11: sendmail.811.11.11.gz
sendmail.893.11.11.gz

So, for 11.00, do I need the 811 or the 893 version? And for 11.11 do I need the 811 or the 893 version?

Berlene,

Never mind - while waiting for the submit to finish, I finally noticed the obvious.

Re: SSRT3469 Potential Security Vulnerability in sendmail

However, I do have an 11.0 system with a 8.8.6 version of sendmail on it - what version should I download for that?

Re: SSRT3469 Potential Security Vulnerability in sendmail

You will have to upgrade to 8.9.3, then apply the sendmail.893.11.00.gz. Our lab doesn't support 8.8.6 anymore :-(
