This signature detects an attempt to exploit a buffer overflow vulnerability in Pointdev IDEAL Migration and IDEAL Administration application.

Additional Information

IDEAL Migration and IDEAL Administration are applications for managing Windows NT and Active Directory domains.

The applications are prone to a stack-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because they fail to perform adequate checks on user-supplied input. Specifically, this issue occurs when parsing a specially crafted '.ipj' project file.

Attackers may leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application. Failed attacks will cause denial-of-service conditions.
