Vulnerability Details : CVE-2008-0926

The SOAP interface to the eMBox module in Novell eDirectory and earlier, and 8.8.x before 8.8.2, relies on client-side authentication, which allows remote attackers to bypass authentication via requests for /SOAP URIs, and cause a denial of service (daemon shutdown) or read arbitrary files. NOTE: it was later reported that (aka 8.7.3 SP10) is also affected.
