Novell NetIdentity Agent < 1.2.4 Arbitrary Pointer De-reference Code Execution

High Nessus Plugin ID 36103


The remote Windows host allows remote execution of arbitrary code.


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.


Upgrade to NetIdentity Agent 1.2.4, build 1.2.612 or later.
