Security Vulnerability - Novell iPrint Client "call-back-url" Buffer Overflow

Novell iPrint Client for Windows


The vulnerability is caused by a boundary error in the handling of the "call-back-url" parameter value for a "op-client-interface-version" operation where the "result-type" parameter is set to "url". This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via an overly long "call-back-url" parameter value.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code when a user visits a malicious website.


Fix is included in "iPrint Client for Windows XP/Vista/Win7 5.44"
