Novell NetMail AntiVirus agent buffer overflow
|netmail-antivirus-bo (38909)||High Risk|
Novell NetMail is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by an integer overflow in the AntiVirus agent. By using the avirus.exe service protocol to add integer value to a memory allocation routine prior to an integer overflow check, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and exploit this vulnerability to corrupt memory and execute arbitrary code on the victim's system.
Apply the patch for this vulnerability (3.52f), available from the Novell Web site. See References.
