4) Description of Vulnerability

Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in Novell iPrint 
Client, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a 
user's system.

The vulnerability is caused by a boundary error in the handling of the
"call-back-url" parameter value for a "op-client-interface-version" 
operation where the "result-type" parameter is set to "url". This can
be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via an overly long
"call-back-url" parameter value.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code when a user
visits a malicious website.

====================================================================== 
5) Solution 

Update to version 5.44.
