 Frech> Reference: XF:dtaction-bo
   Reference: XF:sun-dtaction
 Prosser> Buffer overflow also affects /usr/dt/bin/dtaction in libDtSvc.a
   library in AIX 4.x, but reference for this Sun vulnerability should
   only reflect the Sun Bulletin or the CIAC I-032 version of the Sun
 Christey> This is the Same Codebase as CVE-1999-0089, so the two entries
   should be merged.
 Frech> Replace sun-dtaction(732) with dtaction-bo(879)
 Baker> Merge with 1999-0089
