Novell iPrint Client < 5.72 nipplib.dll GetDriverSettings Function Buffer Overflow

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host contains an application that is affected by a buffer
overflow vulnerability.

Description :

The nipplib.dll component included with the installed version of
Novell iPrint Client blindly copies user input provided as a parameter
to the 'GetDriverSettings' method into a fixed-length buffer on the
stack. By tricking the user into opening a specially crafted file, an
attacker can leverage this issue to overflow a buffer and execute
arbitrary code in the context of the affected application.
