Novell Groupwise servlet default account

by Nikola Strahija on December 17th, 2001 A default username and password exists that controls the servlet manager. The servlet manager allows the configuration of the servlets to be loaded, reloaded or unloaded. This is more of an annoyance than a exploit. The ability to control and unload servlets allows an attacker to deny web based services to users. This will prevent users from accessing mail or other servlet based resources.

Groupwise 5.5 Enhancement Pack
Groupwise 6.0
on Windows NT, Windows 2000, Netware 5

Proof of concept:
username: servlet
password: manager

We strongly advise you to change the default password.
