Novell iManager class buffer overflow
|imanager-class-bo (59694)||High Risk|
Novell iManager is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking when creating a new schema class. By sending a specially crafted HTTP request containing overly long class names to /nps/servlet/webacc/, a remote authenticated attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with SYSTEM privileges or cause the application to crash.
Upgrade to the latest version of iManager (2.7.3 FTF4 or 2.7.4 or later), available from the Novell Web site. See References.
For other distributions:
Apply the appropriate update for your system. See References.
