HP-UX Software Assistant (SWA) is a command-line based tool
that consolidates and simplifies patch management and security bulletin
management on HP-UX systems. The SWA tool is new for HP-UX releases
as of January 2007, replaces Security Patch Check (SPC), and is the
HP-recommended utility to use to maintain currency with HP-published
security bulletins for HP-UX software.
HP provides up-to-date software patches to known security problems
that allow unauthorized root access to your system. For more information,
see Chapter 1.
