IBM Lotus Notes / Domino Client Memory Mapped Files Privilege Escalation

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 27574


The remote Windows host has an application that is affected by an unauthorized access vulnerability.


The version of Lotus Notes installed on the remote Windows host fails to adequately protect certain memory mapped files used by the application for inter-process communications. In a shared user environment, a local user may be able to leverage this issue to read from these files, leading to information disclosure, or write to them, possibly injecting active content such as Lotus Script.


Upgrade as necessary to Lotus Notes Client version 6.5.6 / 7.0.3 / 8.0 or later and then edit the 'notes.ini' configuration file as described in the vendor advisory above.
