- -- Affected Products:
Citrix Presentation Server 4.0
Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server 3.0

- -- TippingPoint(TM) IPS Customer Protection:

- -- Vulnerability Details:
This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on
systems with vulnerable installations of Citrix Presentation Server,
Metaframe Presentation Server or MetaFrame XP. Authentication is not
required to exploit this vulnerability.

The specific flaw exists in a print provider installed by the
Presentation Server. The cpprov.dll library doesn't properly handle
certain invalid calls to the EnumPrintersW() and OpenPrinter()
functions. For example, passing a string of 130 or more characters in
the first argument to the OpenPrinter() function results in a
stack-based buffer overflow and can be leveraged to execute code in the
context of the Spooler service, which runs as the privileged LocalSystem

- -- Vendor Response:
Citrix has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details
