Description

Certain versions of Lotus Notes install a 'notes://' protocol handler which allows a remote attacker to specify an alternate 'notes.ini' file over a UNC share path. Successful exploitation would result in the execution of arbitrary code.

Solution(s)

  • lotus-notes-upgrade-6_0_4
  • lotus-notes-upgrade-6_5_2

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.
