Lotus Notes < 6.5.5 or 7.0.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3422

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.

Description

The remote host is running a Lotus Notes email client. Lotus Notes client versions 6.5.4 and 7.0.0 (and earlier) could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. Specifically, several of the routines that handle the uncompression of archived files do not properly handle malformed files. An attacker exploiting this flaw would need to be able to entice a Lotus Notes user into opening an archived file.

Solution

Upgrade to version 6.5.5, 7.0.1 or higher.
