Novell GroupWise Internet Agent Request Content-Length Header Parsing Remote Overflow
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 62391
SynopsisThe remote host has a web application that is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of Novell GroupWise Internet Agent hosted on the remote host is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability due to the way the application handles the Content-Length HTTP header when it contains the value -1. By exploiting this flaw, a remote, unauthenticated attacker could execute arbitrary code on the remote host subject to the privileges of the user running the affected application.
Note that this version of GroupWise Internet Agent likely has other vulnerabilities (i.e., CVE-2012-0419), but Nessus has not checked for those issues.
SolutionUpdate GroupWise to version 8.0.3 HP1 or later; or 2012 SP1 or later.
