Description

The Domino server has been configured to allow anonymous access to the ScanMail Virus Pattern Definition database (/smency.nsf). This database is used by TrendMicro's ScanMail for Lotus Notes to store its virus definition files. Using this database, an attacker could erase or alter the virus definition files in arbitrary ways, possibly compromising the entire server and allowing viruses and trojan horses to spread via email undetected. Under no circumstances should non-Administrative users have access to this database.

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.
