Lotus Notes Attachment Handling Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for attachment handling vulnerabilities in Lotus Notes

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote Windows application is prone to multiple flaws.

Description :

The version of Lotus Notes installed on the remote host reportedly
contains five buffer overflow vulnerabilities and one directory
traversal vulnerability in the KeyView viewers used to handle message
attachments. By sending specially-crafted attachments to users of the
affected application and getting them to double-click and view the
attachment, a possible hacker may be able to execute arbitrary code subject
to the rights under which the affected application runs or to
delete arbitrary files that are accessible to the NOTES user.
