New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 2.7


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.
