Novell File Reporter Agent XML Parsing Remote Code Execution

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


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a service that is vulnerable to a
remote buffer overflow attack.

Description :

The version of Novell File Reporter (NFR) Agent running on the
remote host is earlier than 1.0.4.2. Such versions reportedly
have a buffer overflow vulnerability because the service, which
listens by default on TCP port 3037, blindly copies user supplied
data into a fixed-length buffer on the stack when handling the
contents of an XML tag.

An unauthenticated, remote attacker who can access the agent service
can leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code under the context of
the SYSTEM user.
