Description

The Domino server has been configured to allow anonymous access to the Lotus Notes and the Internet documentation database (/doc/internet.nsf).

.

This database was installed with early versions of Lotus Domino (e.g. Lotus Domino 1.5 which was also called Lotus Notes 4.51). The database contains documentation which describes how Lotus Notes can connect to the Internet. Most of the early Domino functionality related to the Internet (HTTP, SMTP, etc.) has been significantly upgraded since these early versions. Therefore, this documentation is quite out of date.

There is generally no good reason for this database to even exist on your server. There is certainly no good reason for anonymous users to have access to it.

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.
