Description

Added: 08/10/2012
CVE: CVE-2011-4187
BID: 51926
OSVDB: 78955

Background

Novell iPrint is an application which allows users to install and manage printers. Novell iPrint installs the Novell iPrint Client ActiveX control named **ienipp.ocx**.

Problem

Novell iPrint Client before 5.78 on Windows is vulnerable to a stack buffer overflow as a result of improper verification of a user-supplied realm parameter. The flaw exists within the exposed **GetDriverSettings** method in the **nipplib.dll** component imported by **ienipp.ocx**. A remote attacker who persuades a user to visit a malicious web page with a specially crafted realm argument could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code in the context of the user.

Resolution

Upgrade to iPrint Client for Windows 5.78 or later.
