-- TippingPoint(TM) IPS Customer Protection:
TippingPoint IPS customers have been protected against this
vulnerability since October 26, 2006 by Digital Vaccine protection
filter ID 4519. For further product information on the TippingPoint IPS:
The specific flaw exists within the httpstk.dll library within the
dhost.exe web interface of the eDirectory Host Environment. The web
interface does not validate the length of the HTTP Host header prior to
using the value of that header in an HTTP redirect. This results in an
exploitable stack-based buffer overflow.

Seems that your initiative has fallen a bit behind. Your customers
had to wait for you to realize this had already been released and a
signature was added to Bleeding Snort on 10/23.
It's also a bit odd that Novell released the updates on 10/20/06, the
same day as the MNIN advisory.
Based on the time line it looks like the whole thing might have been
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
