Synopsis :

The remote Windows host allows remote execution of arbitrary code.

Description :

The 'xtagent.exe' program included with the version of Novell's
NetIdentity Agent installed on the remote Windows host contains an
arbitrary pointer de-reference vulnerability. Using specially crafted
RPC messages over the 'XTIERRPCPIPE' named pipe, an attacker who can
establish a valid IPC$ connection can leverage this issue to execute
arbitrary code with system privileges on the affected host.
