Patch: HP Software Distributor buffer overflow

A potential stack overflow in the HP-UX Software Distributor utilities could be exploited by a local user to gain root privileges on the affected machine, according to an alert from NSFOCUS.

Affected systems are HP-UX B.11.00 and HP-UX B.11.11.

For the workaround, see http://www.nsfocus.com/english/homepage/research/0307.htm.
