Novell File Reporter Engine RECORD Element Tag Parsing Overflow (uncredentialed check)

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host is running a service that is susceptible to a remote
buffer overflow attack.

Description :

The version of Novell File Reporter (NFR) Engine running on the
remote host is vulnerable to a remote buffer overflow attack.
Specifically, the application fails to check the size of user-supplied
strings before using them in a call to memcpy when parsing tags inside
the '<RECORD>' element.

An unauthenticated, remote attacker, accessing the service, could
leverage this vulnerability to corrupt the process thread's stack,
possibly resulting in arbitrary code execution under the context of a
privileged account.
