Novell ZENworks Asset Management msg.dll Heap Overflow
------------------------------------------------------------------------


SUMMARY

Novell Inc's <http://www.novell.com/products/zenworks/> ZENworks is a set
of tools used to automate IT management and business processes across the
various computing resources within an organization. The Task Server and
Collection server daemons provide functionality to manage a distributed
network of machines. These daemons will typically only be running on the
machine that is being used to manage assets.

Remote exploitation of an integer overflow vulnerability in Novell Inc.'s
ZENworks Asset Management could potentially allow an attacker to execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the administrator.

DETAILS

A heap overflow may occur when processing specially crafted packets sent
to the Task Server or Collection Server daemons. This problem specifically
exists due to an integer overflow when allocating memory for remotely
supplied data.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability could allow a remote
attacker to take complete control of the affected system.

While researching this vulnerability, iDefense Labs found that the Task
Server and Collection Server components were both affected. Additionally,
the Collection Client is statically linked with this library. Information
