Novell iPrint Client call-back-url buffer overflow
|novell-iprint-callbackurl-bo (61220)||High Risk|
Novell iPrint Client is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the call-back-url parameter for a op-client-interface-version operation. By persuading a victim to visit a specially-crafted Web site, a remote attacker using an overly long call-back-url parameter could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
