IBM Lotus Domino Multiple Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerabilities

Published: 2011-05-09 13:38:03
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:

Successful exploitation may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code in the context of the Lotus Domino server process or bypass authentication.

Affected Versions:
IBM Lotus Domino versions 8.5.3 prior

Technical Details:
Multiple flaws are due to, - Stack overflow in the SMTP service, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via long arguments in a filename parameter in a malformed MIME e-mail message. - Buffer overflow in nLDAP.exe, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via an LDAP Bind operation. - Stack overflow in the NRouter service, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via long filenames associated with Content-ID and ATTACH:CID headers in attachments in malformed calendar-request e-mail messages. - Multiple stack overflows in the POP3 and IMAP services, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via non-printable characters in an envelope sender address. - The Remote Console, when a certain unsupported configuration involving UNC share pathnames is used, allows remote attackers to bypass authentication and execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors.

Upgrade to version 8.5.2 FP3 or 8.5.3 or later.

The host is running IBM Lotus Domino Server and is prone to multiple vulnerabilities.

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

Detection Type:
Remote Banner Unreliable

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
