high Nessus Plugin ID 27534
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The remote Windows host has an application that is affected by several buffer overflow vulnerabilities.


The version of Lotus Notes installed on the remote Windows host is reportedly affected by several buffer overflows in its file attachment viewer when handling attachments of various types. By sending a specially crafted attachment 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.

It is also affected by another buffer overflow vulnerability in the TagAttributeListCopy function in ''nnotes.dll'' that could be triggered when a specially crafted message is replied to, forwarded, or copied to the clipboard by a user of the application.


Upgrade to Lotus Notes version 7.0.3 / 8.0.1 or later.
