SOURCE:     Digital Equipment Corporation


     ECO Kit Name:  MOTDU_E01032F
     ECO Kits Superseded by This ECO Kit:  None
     ECO Kit Approximate Size:  363 Blocks

     Kit Applies To:  DIGITAL UNIX V3.2F
                      DECwindows Motif 1.2.3

     System/Cluster Reboot Necessary:  No


An ECO kit exists for DECwindows Motif Toolkit for DIGITAL UNIX V3.2F.
The Motif Toolkit for Digital UNIX V3.2F Release Notes contain a complete
explanation of this release.  This kit addresses the following problems:

  o  DECwindows Session Manager (dxsession)

     A potential security vulnerability has been discovered,
     where dxsession writes to /tmp directory, which under
     certain circumstances, system integrity may be compromised.  
     Digital has corrected potential vulnerability.

     An ungraceful exit can be made through the window manager's
     'Close' button, whose behavior is inconsistent with that of
     dxsession's 'End Session' button.


     Install this kit using the PATCH script found in the compressed
     tar file motdu_e01032f.tar.Z .  To unpack the kit, create an
     empty directory and extract the contents of motdu_e01032f.tar.Z
     into that directory.

     NOTE:  If this ECO is received on tape media, it will already
            be in an uncompressed .tar, motdu_e01032f.tar, format.
