Lotus Domino /./ Request Database Locking DoS

This script is Copyright (C) 2003-2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web server is affected by a denial of service
vulnerability.

Description :

It might be possible to lock out some Lotus Domino databases by
requesting them through the web interface with a special request
containing a '/./' string in the URL path.

This attack is only efficient on databases that are not used by
the server.

*** Note that no real attack was performed,
*** so this may be a false positive.

Solution :

Upgrade to Lotus Domino 5.0.9 or later, as this reportedly fixes
the issue.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 5.0
(CVSS2#E:H/RL:U/RC:ND)
