IBM Domino 8.5.x < 8.5.3 Fix Pack 6 Interim Fix 2 NX Memory Protection Disabled

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 73967


The remote server is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.


According to its banner, the version of IBM Domino (formerly IBM Lotus Domino) on the remote host is 8.5.x prior to 8.5.3 Fix Pack 6 (FP6) Interim Fix 2 (IF2). It is, therefore, more susceptible to exploitation due to the GCC '-z execstack' flag being used during compilation. This flag disables the memory protection provided by the No eXecute (NX) bit allowing remote attackers to execute arbitrary code more easily.

Note that this issue only affects Linux hosts running 32-bit versions of Domino.


Upgrade to IBM Domino 8.5.3 FP6 IF2 or later.
