Netware NDS Default Rights Vulnerability

Non-authenticated clients have access to CX.EXE and NLIST.EXE in the SYS:LOGIN directory of a Netware 4.x server. The default root access is set to Read. Therefore, by using various switch options in CX.EXE and NLIST.EXE, anyone connecting to the server can gain access to NDS tree information such as account names, group names and membership, tree layout etc. By attaching to different servers and switching contexts an intruder could gain an understanding of the NDS structure for the entire network.
