RELEASE DATE: 21 September 2002 REVISED DATE: 26 September 2002 - HotFix available ============ SEVERITY - High SOURCE: Compaq Computer Corporation, ======= a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hewlett-Packard Company and Hewlett-Packard Company HP Services Software Security Response Team REFERENCE: SSRT2362 ========== PROBLEM SUMMARY =============== This bulletin will be posted to the support website within 24 hours of release to - http://thenew.hp.com/country/us/eng/support.html Use the SEARCH IN feature box, enter SSRT2362 in the search window. ** REVISION 03 ** -->> UPDATE: HP has provided a hotfix for this problem. -->> The hotfix is available from - -->> http://www.compaq.com/support/svctools/webes/ SSRT2362 WEBES/ Compaq Analyze (Severity - High) A potential vulnerability has been reported where, under certain circumstances, a non-privileged user may gain unauthorized access to privileged files. This may be in the form of local and remote security domain risks. Compaq Analyze is a Compaq proprietary tool and can be installed on customer sites with a hardware warranty, hardware service contract, or service obligation. VERSIONS IMPACTED ================= WEBES V2.0 through WEBES V4.0 (Service Pack 5) Operating Systems affected are: HP Tru64 UNIX V4.0d, V4.0e, V4.0f, V4.0g, V5.0a, V5.1, V5.1a All versions of HP OpenVMS Alpha V7.1-2 and later. Windows NT 4.0, Windows NT for Alpha, Windows 2000, and Windows XP RESOLUTION ========== ** REVISION 03 ** -->> UPDATE: HP has provided a hotfix for this problem. -->> The hotfix is available from - -->> http://www.compaq.com/support/svctools/webes/ HP is working to provide a hotfix for this problem as quickly as possible, this procedure to disable the Compaq Analyze web service is only a temporary workaround until a solution has been provided and only affects the web interface. The hotfix will be announced at http://www.compaq.com/support/svctools/webes/ early the week of September 23rd. 1. Checking for installation: Use the desta status command to see if the WEBES product is installed, and if the director is running. 2. Disabling the CA Web User Interface: This information comes from the CA Users Guide. The following procedure describes how to turn off the Compaq Analyze web service. Stop the Director by entering desta stop at the command prompt. If WEBES is installed on a Tru64 UNIX or OpenVMS cluster, stop the Director on all nodes of the cluster. On Tru64 UNIX, this can be done from one node using the /usr/sbin/webes_install_update utility. On OpenVMS, this can be done using SYSMAN with the following commands: $ mcr sysman SYSMAN> set env /cluster SYSMAN> do desta stop SYSMAN> exit 3. To prevent the CA WEB interface from restarting when the Director is restarted: Edit the ConfigDefaultsCA*.txt file in the config directory. Tru64 UNIX - edit the following file: /usr/opt/compaq/svctools/config/ConfigDefaultsCADUnix.txt OpenVMS - edit the following file: svctools_home:[config]ConfigDefaultsCAOpenVMS.txt Windows - edit the following file: c:\Program Files\Compaq\Svctools\Config\ConfigDefaultsCAWindows.txt Put a # in front of the line com.compaq.svctools.ca.services.web.CAWebService. The contents of the file should look similar to this: # ConfigDefaultsCAOpenVMS.txt # # Compaq Analyze Default Components, ** OpenVMS Version ** # # Default components of Compaq Analyze, to enroll the first time the # DESTA Director process is executed, as fully qualified Java class # names. # After DESTA runs the first time, the file Configuration.dat willbe # created, and it will be read on startup instead of ConfigDefaults*.txt. # # Duplicates are OK, so let's add the CommonDirector even though it's # also in ConfigDefaultsDESTA.txt, since we can't run the other # services without it. # com.compaq.svctools.desta.core.CommonDirector com.compaq.svctools.ca.services.analysis.EvtAnalyzer com.compaq.svctools.ca.services.decomposers.EvtDecomposer com.compaq.svctools.ca.services.eventreaders.SwccReader com.compaq.svctools.ca.services.web.CAWebService # The next line is specific to OpenVMS com.compaq.svctools.ca.services.eventreaders.VMSReader # # Uncomment the next line if operation of the Unanalyzed Event # Logging service is desired. #com.compaq.svctools.ca.services.analysis.UnanalyzedEventLogger com.compaq.svctools.desta.services.notification.ACHSNotification 4. Delete the configuration.dat file from the following directories (assuming you used the default install directory): Tru64 UNIX - /usr/opt/compaq/svctools/desta/config OpenVMS - svctools_home:[desta.config] Windows - C:\Program Files\Compaq\Svctools\desta\config 5. Restart the Director using the procedures described below: HP Tru64 UNIX - Enter /usr/sbin/desta start at a shell prompt. The "root" superuser must restart the Director because it requires root privileges to operate correctly. If WEBES is installed on a Tru64 UNIX cluster, restart the Director on all nodes of the cluster. This can be done from one node using the /usr/sbin/webes_install_update utility. HP OpenVMS - Enter desta start at the OpenVMS command line prompt. The user that restarts the Director must have all privileges set, for the Director to operate correctly. If WEBES is installed on an OpenVMS cluster, restart the Director on all nodes of the cluster. On OpenVMS this can be done using SYSMAN with the following commands: $ mcr sysman SYSMAN> set env /cluster SYSMAN> do desta start SYSMAN> exit Windows - Select Programs | Compaq Service Tools | Web-Based Enterprise Service | Start Director from the Start menu. -or- Enter net start DESTA_Service in a Command Prompt window to start the DESTA_Service Windows service that starts the Director. You also can start DESTA_Service from the Services utility in the Control Panel. SUPPORT ======= For further information, contact HP Services.
