III. PLATFORM VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT

Note: To use the following commands on VIOS you must first
execute:

oem_setup_env

To determine if your system is vulnerable, execute the following
command:

lslpp -L bos.net.tcp.client
lslpp -L bos.net.tcp.server

The following fileset levels are vulnerable:

B. FIXES

    Fixes are available.  The fixes can be downloaded via ftp
    from:

    ftp://aix.software.ibm.com/aix/efixes/security/bind9_fix7.tar

    The link above is to a tar file containing this signed
    advisory, fix packages, and PGP signatures for each package.
    The fixes below include prerequisite checking. This will
    enforce the correct mapping between the fixes and AIX
    Technology Levels.

    AIX Level   Interim Fix (*.Z)            KEY
    --------------------------------------------------
    5.3.12.9    IV68997m9a.150129.epkg.Z     key_w_fix
    6.1.8.6     IV68993s6a.150129.epkg.Z     key_w_fix
    6.1.9.4     IV68994s4a.150129.epkg.Z     key_w_fix
    7.1.2.6     IV68995s6a.150129.epkg.Z     key_w_fix
    7.1.3.4     IV68996s4a.150129.epkg.Z     key_w_fix

    VIOS Level   Interim Fix (*.Z)
    -------------------------------------
    2.2.2.4      IV68993s6a.150129.epkg.Z 
    2.2.3.4      IV68994s4a.150129.epkg.Z

    To extract the fixes from the tar file:
    tar -xvf bind9_fix7.tar
    cd bind9_fix7

    Verify you have retrieved the fixes intact:

    The checksums below were generated using the
    "openssl dgst -sha256 file" command as the followng:

    openssl dgst -sha256                                             filename                 KEY
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    9aedad84518e61d3a49f2853bdb0710228d9ebfdeae2defe9a323076f333177d IV68993s6a.150129.epkg.Z key_w_csum

    These sums should match exactly. The OpenSSL signatures in the tar
    file and on this advisory can also be used to verify the
    integrity of the fixes.  If the sums or signatures cannot be
    confirmed, contact IBM AIX Security at
    security-alert@austin.ibm.com and describe the discrepancy.

    openssl dgst -sha1 -verify <pubkey_file> -signature <advisory_file>.sig <advisory_file>

    openssl dgst -sha1 -verify <pubkey_file> -signature <ifix_file>.sig <ifix_file>

 C. FIX AND INTERIM FIX INSTALLATION

    IMPORTANT: If possible, it is recommended that a mksysb backup
    of the system be created.  Verify it is both bootable and
    readable before proceeding.

    To preview a fix installation:

    installp -a -d fix_name -p all  # where fix_name is the name of the
                                    # fix package being previewed.
    To install a fix package:

    installp -a -d fix_name -X all  # where fix_name is the name of the
                                    # fix package being installed.

    Interim fixes have had limited functional and regression
    testing but not the full regression testing that takes place
    for Service Packs; however, IBM does fully support them.

    Interim fix management documentation can be found at:

    http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/sas/f/aix.efixmgmt/home.html

    To preview an interim fix installation:

    emgr -e ipkg_name -p         # where ipkg_name is the name of the
                                 # interim fix package being previewed.

    To install an interim fix package:

    emgr -e ipkg_name -X         # where ipkg_name is the name of the
                                 # interim fix package being installed.

V. WORKAROUNDS (from kb.isc.org) None.
