Novell GroupWise Internet Agent Request Content-Length Header Parsing Remote Overflow

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


Synopsis :

The remote host has a web application that is affected by a buffer
overflow vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Novell GroupWise Internet Agent hosted on the remote
host is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability due to the way the
application handles the Content-Length HTTP header when it contains the
value -1. By exploiting this flaw, a remote, unauthenticated attacker
could execute arbitrary code on the remote host subject to the
privileges of the user running the affected application.

Note that this version of GroupWise Internet Agent likely has other
vulnerabilities (i.e., CVE-2012-0419), but Nessus has not checked for
those issues.
