Lotus Notes < 6.5.5 Web Mail Attachment HTML Injection

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3052

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a Script Injection attack.

Description

The remote host is running the Lotus Notes email client. Lotus Notes client versions 6.5.4 and earlier could allow a remote attacker to inject HTML and JavaScript into email messages.

Successful exploitation would result in potentially malicious code executing with the user's privileges.

Solution

Upgrade to version 6.5.5 or higher.
