Denial of service in Novell GroupWise

Oxygen3 24h-365d, by Panda Software (http://www.pandasoftware.com)

Madrid, October 5 2006 - A vulnerability has been reported in the Novell
GroupWise Messenger agents, which could allow a remote user to provoke
denial of service conditions.

A remote user could crash the Messenger service by sending the target
system an HTTP POST request to port 8300 with a specially modified "val"
parameter. Novell has confirmed that the error lies in the processing of
zero-size strings in blowfish routines.

Novell has published the patches to correct this problem:

- Para 1.0.6:
<http://support.novell.com/servlet/filedownload/sec/ftf/gwim106hp1.exe>
- Para 2.0.2: <http://support.novell.com/servlet/fi
ledownload/sec/ftf/gwim202hp1.exe>

The original Novell advisories are available at:

- <http://support.novell.com/cgi-bin/search/searchtid.cgi?/2974440.htm>
