Description

Added: 05/27/2011
CVE: CVE-2010-4229
BID: 47295
OSVDB: 71872

Background

Novell ZENworks is a resource management solution consisting of a management server and management agents.

Problem

The Asset Management module (ZAM) of ZENworks version 10.3 prior to 10.3.2 and version 11 fail to validate the name of uploaded files. An attacker may exploit this behavior to upload an executable Java file while traversing the directory structure, such that the uploaded file will be executed by the server.

Resolution

Upgrade to ZENworks 10.3.2 or later.
