Title: HPSBUX02105 SSRT061134 rev.1 - HP-UX Running swagentd Remote Denial of Service (DoS)
Potential Impact: Remote Denial of Service (DoS)
Summary: A potential security vulnerability has been identified in HP-UX running swagentd. The vulnerability could be exploited remotely by an unauthenticated user to cause swagentd to abort resulting in a Denial of Service (DoS).
Affected Versions: HP-UX B.11.00, B.11.04, B.11.11 running swagentd

Some Avaya Predictive Dialer v12 Systems (PDS v12) run a vulnerable version of swagent. Systems with SP4 are not vulnerable as patch PHCO_28847 was included in SP4, which mitigates the vulnerability. PDS v12 systems without SP4 should follow the recommended actions in the table below.
