-- Vulnerability Details:
This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on
vulnerable installations of the Novell iPrint client. User interaction
is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit
a malicious page.

The specific flaw exists within the ienipp.ocx ActiveX control with
CLSID 36723f97-7aa0-11d4-8919-FF2D71D0D32C. The function exposes a
GetDriverFile method. When this method is invoked for the first time a
pointer in the .data section is mapped to an external function within
another module. When invoked the second time, the process fails to load
the library and assumes the pointer is still valid. When the
uninitialized pointer is called the process jumps to an address space
easily controlled by an attacker. This can be leveraged to execute
remote code under the context of the user running the browser.

Novell has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More
