Novell Messenger Server < 2.2.1 Memory Information Disclosure

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host has an instant messaging server product installed that is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.

Description

The remote host is running Novell Messenger Server, formerly Groupwise Messenger, an instant messaging server application.

Versions of Novell Messenger Server earlier than 2.2.1 are potentially affected by an information disclosure vulnerability whereby a remote, unauthenticated attacker could send commands that would force the Messenger server process to return the contents of arbitrary memory locations. This data could potentially include strings containing the credentials used by Messenger to authenticate to directory services.

Solution

Upgrade to Novell Messenger 2.2.1 or later.
