-- CVE ID:
CVE-2006-5478

-- Affected Vendor:
Novell

-- Affected Products:
Novell eDirectory 8.8.1

-- TippingPoint(TM) IPS Customer Protection:
TippingPoint IPS customers have been protected against this
vulnerability since October 26, 2006 by Digital Vaccine protection
filter ID 4519. For further product information on the TippingPoint IPS:

-- Vulnerability Details:
This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on
vulnerable installations of Novell eDirectory. Authentication is not
required to exploit this vulnerability.

The specific flaw exists within the httpstk.dll library within the
dhost.exe web interface of the eDirectory Host Environment. The web
interface does not validate the length of the HTTP Host header prior to
using the value of that header in an HTTP redirect. This results in an
exploitable stack-based buffer overflow.


-- Vendor Response:
Novell has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details
