CRITICAL: Moderately critical

WHERE: >From local network
SOFTWARE: Isode M-Vault 11.x http://secunia.com/product/8065/
DESCRIPTION: Evgeny Legerov has reported a vulnerability in Isode M-Vault Server, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) and potentially compromise a vulnerable system.
The vulnerability is caused due to an error in the LDAP server within the handling of certain requests. This can be exploited to cause a double free error which crashes the service and may allow arbitrary code execution via a specially-crafted request sent to port 389/tcp.
The vulnerability has been reported in version 11.3. Other versions may also be affected.
SOLUTION: Restrict access to the LDAP service.
PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY: Evgeny Legerov, GLEG Ltd.
