Netware 5.1 Remote Admin Overflow
Reported April 18, 2000 by Michal Zalewski
The Remote Administration service contains a buffer overflow condition that could allow an attacker to launch a denial of service attack against the system, or possibly inject code into the operating system for execution.
Because of inproper connection clean up, it is possible to saturate such a system with connections to a point where the system will stop responding on the network.
This is a simple script, which left to run for some time,
would probably kill Netware"s TCP/IP stack. Change $SERVER and $PORT before using this to
test your servers for the vulnerability.
Novell is aware of this issue, however no response was known at the time of this writing.
