Novell iManager < 2.7 SP3 eDirectory Plugin Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5295


The remote web server is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.


Novell iManager is installed on the remote host. The version of iManager is earlier than 2.7 SP3 and is therefore potentially affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability in the eDirectory plugin. A remote attacker, exploiting this flaw, could potentially execute arbitrary code.


Upgrade to Novell iManager 2.7 SP3 (iManager 2.7.3).
