Description

Lotus Domino R5 versions prior to 5.0.7 (for Windows and OS/2) are subject to a denial of service attack. If numerous requests are made for MS DOS device names (e.g. /CON), ncgihttp.exe inappropriately handles them, resulting in the exhaustion of system resources.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
