Introduction

This patch eliminates three Microsoft security vulnerabilities that affect the BBSM 5.3 server. Attackers could exploit these vulnerabilities and gain complete control of an affected system. Attackers could then install programs, view, change, or delete data, or create new accounts with full system privileges. We recommend that you install this patch immediately.

Security Update for Microsoft Windows (835732)

This update resolves newly-discovered vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows. For additional information, refer to this Microsoft website:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS04-011.mspx

Cumulative Update for Microsoft RPC/DCOM (828741)

This update resolves newly-discovered vulnerabilities in Remote Procedure Call (RPC) and Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM). For additional information, refer to this Microsoft website:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS04-012.mspx

Vulnerability in the Microsoft Jet Database Engine Could Allow Code Execution (837001)

A buffer overrun vulnerability exists in the Microsoft Jet Database Engine that could allow remote code execution. For additional information, refer to this Microsoft website:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS04-014.mspx

Installation

This patch can be installed locally onto any BBSM 5.3 server with Internet access or remotely onto multiple BBSM servers from another computer.


Caution We recommend terminating all client sessions during BBSM service pack and patch upgrades and installations. For additional information, refer to the Cisco BBSM 5.3 Operations Guide.

Follow these steps to install this patch onto the BBSM 5.3 server:


Step 1 Using the Internet Explorer (IE) web browser, go to the Cisco BBSM 5.3 Software Download website:

http://www.cisco.com/pcgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/bbsm53


Note Because of some known issues and incompatibilities with Netscape Navigator, you must use the IE browser when using WEBpatch.


Step 2 Download Patch5314.exe to a temporary location on your computer.

For a local BBSM installation, go to Step 7.

For a remote BBSM installation, continue with Step 3.


Note If you are using the Windows 2000 (SP2 or later) or Windows XP operating systems to install this patch remotely, the WEBpatch web pages load very slowly. To prevent this problem, uncheck Client for Microsoft Networks in the NIC Properties window on your remote computer.


Step 3 In the IE browser field, enter http://<external_NIC_address>:9488/www where <external_NIC_address> is the external NIC address of the BBSM server.


Note As of BBSM 5.3, the FTP port on the internal network is blocked. Because WEBpatch - Transfer uses FTP, patches and service packs can be transferred only from the external network to BBSM. They cannot be transferred from within the BBSM network.


Step 4 Press Enter. The Enter Network Password window appears.

Step 5 Enter your username and password. (Do not enter any information in the Domain field.)


Note You must have administrator privileges to use WEBpatch.


Step 6 Click OK. The remote BBSM Dashboard appears.

Step 7 From the BBSM Dashboard, use the WEBpatch utility to install this patch.


Note For instructions on transferring and installing BBSM patches and service packs, refer to the Cisco BBSM 5.3 Operations Guide. This patch automatically reboots the BBSM server.

Submitting a Service Request

Using the online TAC Service Request Tool is the fastest way to open S3 and S4 service requests. (S3 and S4 service requests are those in which your network is minimally impaired or for which you require product information.) After you describe your situation, the TAC Service Request Tool automatically provides recommended solutions. If your issue is not resolved using the recommended resources, your service request will be assigned to a Cisco TAC engineer. The TAC Service Request Tool is located at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/techsupport/servicerequest

For S1 or S2 service requests or if you do not have Internet access, contact the Cisco TAC by telephone. (S1 or S2 service requests are those in which your production network is down or severely degraded.) Cisco TAC engineers are assigned immediately to S1 and S2 service requests to help keep your business operations running smoothly.

To open a service request by telephone, use one of the following numbers:

Asia-Pacific: +61 2 8446 7411 (Australia: 1 800 805 227)

Definitions of Service Request Severity

To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity definitions.

Severity 1 (S1)—Your network is "down," or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.

Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your business operation are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.

Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of your network is impaired, but most business operations remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service to satisfactory levels.

Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.
