Lotus Notes < 6.5.5 / 7.0.1 Attachment Handling Vulnerabilities

This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows application is prone to multiple flaws.

Description :

The version of Lotus Notes installed on the remote host reportedly
contains five buffer overflow vulnerabilities and one directory
traversal vulnerability in the KeyView viewers used to handle message
attachments. By sending specially crafted attachments to users of the
affected application and getting them to double-click and view the
attachment, an attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code subject
to the privileges under which the affected application runs or to
delete arbitrary files that are accessible to the NOTES user.

or later.
