IBM Lotus Notes 8.5.1 / 8.5.2 / 8.5.3 < 8.5.3 FP3 Multiple Vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 63281
SynopsisThe remote host has software installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe remote host has a version of Lotus Notes 8.5.1, 8.5.2, or 8.5.3.x prior to 8.5.3 Fix Pack 3 installed. It is, therefore, reportedly affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- The included version of the IBM Java SDK contains a version of the IBM JRE that contains several errors that allow Java code execution outside the Java sandbox. (CVE-2012-4820, CVE-2012-4821, CVE-2012-4822, CVE-2012-4823)
- Information disclosure is possible because the application does not set the 'HttpOnly' flag in the 'Set-Cookie' HTTP header. This can allow client-side scripts to read or modify HTTP cookie information.
Note that applying the Java patch (Reference #1616652) alone does not correct the 'HttpOnly' information disclosure vulnerability.
Further note that in the case of version 8.5.3 Fix Pack 2, if the Java patch (Reference #1616652) and the interim fix (853FP2IF3) have been applied, this may be a false positive.
SolutionUpgrade to Lotus Notes 8.5.3 Fix Pack 3 or later. Alternatively, if version 8.5.3 Fix Pack 2 is in use, install the Java patch (Reference #1616652) and the interim fix 853FP2IF3.
