HP's Unix and Mandrake Linux Both Have Vulnerabilities
HP's Unix and Mandrake Linux Both Have Vulnerabilities

According to Danish-based security specialists Secunia, there are "highly critical" vulnerabilities in Mandrake 9.1 and HP's version of Unix, HP UX.

So far as HP UX is concerned, says Secunia, the problem involves a number of holes discovered in the Netscape browser for HP-UX which if exploited would give an attacker remote access to system information and data - as well as opportunities to run code or knock out the system altogether with a DoS attack.

The way to combat this, says, HP is for Netscape users to upgrade to the latest release of Mozilla. This shares the same Gecko engine as Netscape and can be found at www.hp.com/go/mozilla.

Mandrake has also made patches available for a "highly critical" buffer overrun vulnerability in the 32- and 64-bit versions of Mandrake 9.1 and upwards and of Corporate Server 2.1. The problem exists in the mod_proxy module of the Apache Web server. Mandrake users are advised to stop Apache and then to auto-update as soon as possible.
