CommuniGate Pro Server < 5.0.7 LDAP BER Decoding Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 20827


The remote application is prone to denial of service attacks.


The remote host appears to be running CommuniGate Pro, a commercial email and groupware application.

The version of CommuniGate Pro installed on the remote host includes an LDAP server that reportedly fails to handle requests with negative BER lengths. A user can leverage this issue to crash not just the LDAP server but also the entire application on the remote host. Remote code execution may even be possible.


Upgrade to CommuniGate Pro version 5.0.7 or later.
