Description

The Domino server has been configured to allow anonymous access to the InterNotes Web Configuration database (/webcfg.nsf). This database is installed with early R4 releases of Lotus InterNotes (the web-enabled Notes precursor to Domino). This database contains sensitive configuration information about your Notes and InterNotes publishing configurations. An attacker could use this database to gain information about the server's physical paths. If administrative access is granted, an attacker could add entries to this database and cause InterNotes to publish unpublished databases to the web (including databases from other servers, as long as they can be accessed from the InterNotes servers). 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.
