Summary:

Novell NetMail 3.5.2a, 3.5.2b, and 3.5.2c, when running on Linux, sets the owner and group ID to 500 for certain files, which could allow users or groups with that ID to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service by modifying those files.

Exploitability Analysis: Local

A vulnerability exploitable with only local access requires the attacker to have either physical access to the vulnerable system or a local (shell) account. Examples of locally exploitable vulnerabilities are peripheral attacks such as Firewire/USB DMA attacks, and local privilege escalations (e.g., sudo).

Exploitability Complexity: Low

Specialized access conditions or extenuating circumstances do not exist. The following are examples: The affected product typically requires access to a wide range of systems and users, possibly anonymous an untrusted (e.g., Internet-facing web or mail server). The affected configuration is default or ubiquitous. The attack can be performed manually and requires little skill or additional information gathering. The 'race condition' is a lazy one (i.e., it is technically a race but easily winnable).

Authentication: Single_instance

One instance of authentication is required to access and exploit the vulnerability.

Confidentiality Impact: None

There is no impact to the confidentiality of the system.

Integrity Impact: None

There is no impact to the integrity of the system.

Availability Impact: Partial

There is reduced performance or interruptions in resource availability. An example is a network-based flood attack that permits a limited number of successful connections to an Internet service.
