3) Technical details
============================

This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Novell iPrint Server.

Authentication is not required to exploit this vulnerability.

The flaw exists within the '/opt/novell/iprint/bin/ipsmd' component this component communicates with

'ilprsrvd' which listens on TCP port 515. When handling multiple LPR opcodes the process blindly copies user supplied data

into a fixed-length buffer on the stack. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code

under the context of the iprint user.
