.:: SUMMARY 

Novell GroupWise Client Integer Overflow 

Version: GroupWise 6.5.3, It is suspected that all previous versions of 
Groupwise Client
are vulnerable. 

.:: BACKGROUND 

GroupWise Client is Novell's premier Intranet/Internet GroupWare solution 
for platform Windows. 

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

.:: DESCRIPTION 

This issue is due to a failure of the application to securely parse the
saved port number of the last authentication store in windows register. 

To reproduce this, we have to modify the default register key of
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Novell\GroupWise\Login Parameters\TCP/IP Port 

For example, set the value (11111111111111111111111111111111). 

Then, when we open the application client and the client get the port
information occur the integer overflow.
