Novell NetWare HTTP POST Perl Code Execution Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Webserver perl handler executes arbitrary POSTs

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Novell Netware contains multiple default web server installations.
The Netware Enterprise Web Server (Netscape/IPlanet) has a perl
handler which will run arbitrary code given to in a POST request
version 5.x (through SP4) and 6.x (through SP1) are effected.

Network Security Threat Level: High

Additionally, the enterprise manager web interface may be used to
unmap the /perl handler entirely. If it is not being used, minimizing
this service would be appropriate.
