    B. FIXES

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

        ftp://aix.software.ibm.com/aix/efixes/security/sendmail1_fix.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)
        -------------------------------------------------------------------
        6.1.6.7                       IV22965s07.120613.epkg.Z
        6.1.7.4                       IV22966s04.120613.epkg.Z
        7.1.0.5                       IV22964s05.120613.epkg.Z
        7.1.1.4                       IV22963s04.120613.epkg.Z

        VIOS Level                    Interim Fix (*.Z)
        -------------------------------------------------------------------
        2.2.1.4-FP-25 SP-02           IV22966s04.120613.epkg.Z

        To extract the fixes from the tar file:

        tar xvf sendmail1_fix.tar
        cd sendmail1_fix

        Verify you have retrieved the fixes intact:

        The checksums below were generated using the
        "csum -h SHA1" (sha1sum) command is the followng:

        csum -h SHA1 (sha1sum)                    filename
        ------------------------------------------------------------------
       ee86e5eebf46c8fe82fc4b03b42c9463b5e5facd  IV22965s07.120613.epkg.Z
       940db4f9d8369837b599aad6932f1bbc34b4fbec  IV22966s04.120613.epkg.Z
       a10703ae2a264b15adc6eb88609985c78728bb90  IV22964s05.120613.epkg.Z
       188d4f9ffbd8591e331d174419f9ba3d4924801c  IV22963s04.120613.epkg.Z


        To verify the sum, use the text of this advisory as input to sha1sum.
        For example:

        csum -h SHA1 -i Advisory.asc
        sha1sum -c Advisory.asc

        These sums should match exactly. The PGP 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.

     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; thus, IBM does not warrant the fully
        correct functionality of an interim fix.

        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.
