3) Technical details
============================

This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Novell Groupwise Internet Agent. Authentication is required to exploit this vulnerability.

The flaw exists within the IMAP functionality included with GWIA. When provided with an overly long mailbox name to the CREATE verb, the IMAP server can be forced to overflow a buffer on the stack. Successful exploitation leads to remote code execution under the context of the server.
