Novell iPrint Client nipplib.dll IppCreateServerRef Function Buffer Overflow

Medium

Synopsis

The remote Windows host has an application that is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.

Description

The installed version of Novell iPrint Client is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability. By passing very long arguments to either 'GetPrinterURLList()', 'GetPrinterURLList2()', or 'GetFileList2()' functions available in ActiveX control 'ienipp.ocx', it may be possible to cause a heap-based buffer overflow in function 'IppCreateServerRef()' provided by 'nipplib.dll'. Successful exploitation of this issue may result in arbitrary code execution on the remote system.

Solution

Upgrade to Novell iPrint Client version 5.08 or Novell iPrint Client for Windows 4.38 or higher.
