MS05-046: Vulnerability in the Client Service for NetWare Could Allow Remote Code Execution (899589) (uncredentialed check)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 20006


A flaw in the client service for NetWare may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote host.


The remote host contains a version of the Client Service for NetWare that is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.

An attacker may exploit this flaw by connecting to the NetWare RPC service (possibly over IP) and triggering the overflow by sending a malformed RPC request.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 2000, XP and 2003.
