Description

Lotus Domino Server is an application framework for web based collaborative software. It runs on multiple platforms including Windows and Unix. It is possible to cause a denial of services to legitimate users of the web server. This is accomplished by invoking MS-DOS devices (such as CON, AUX, PRN, etc.) in multiple web requests. It generally takes 400 requests or fewer to cause this denial of service. A manual restart of the service is required to regain normal functionality.
