NOTICE: (Wed, 14:01 EST) OpenVMS.org is currently in maintenance mode. Late last week the database became corrupted. An initial attempt was made to recover the db but a two week old backup had to be used instead. There have been plans to change the content management system to Wordpress. After trying to rebuild several servers using older versions of PHP, depricated function issues remained a problem. So after many days and many hours I've decided to get the database converted to Wordpress which will include a replicated theme so the site will look similar. This is going to take several more days. The website will hopefully be fully functional by early next week. Thanks for your patience and sorry for the downtime. -kf
HP TCP/IP Services vulnerabilties and fixes
Posted by Ian on Tuesday September 23 2008 @ 03:49AM EDT
HP have posted information and fixes for the finger service and cache poisoning vulnerabilities which have been reported for recent versions of the HP TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS product
The finger software has a vulnerability only when the service is enabled, which it often is not.
Some HP TCP/IP versions contain a DNS cache poisoning vulnerability. If your system is not acting as a nameserver you do not need the updated images.
