        Novell NetWare 6.0 RConsoleJ Authentication Bypass Vulnerability
               [Novell Technical Information Document - 2963349]

August 22, 2002 18:00 GMT                                         Number M-115
______________________________________________________________________________
PROBLEM:       Novell NetWare RCONAG6 allows users to remotely administer a
               Novell server. An unauthenticated user may be allowed to
               remotely access a host server through RConsoleJ when used with
               SSL.
PLATFORM:      NetWare 6.0 SP2
DAMAGE:        A remote attacker could gain local access to the vulnerable
               system without the need for a password.
SOLUTION:      Apply NetWare 6.0 SP2 patches. Must have a Novell-support login
               account number to access patches.
______________________________________________________________________________
VULNERABILITY  The risk is MEDIUM. To exploit this vulnerability, a remote
ASSESSMENT:    attacker must be aware of a vulnerable system and be able to
               connect using the RConsoleJ client, and then may gain local
			   access.
