Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer


Severity High
Score 7.6/10


Stack-based buffer overflow in the Lotus Domino Web Access ActiveX control in IBM Lotus iNotes (aka Domino Web Access or DWA) 6.5, 7.0 before 7.0.4, 8.0, 8.0.2, and before 229.281 for Domino 8.0.2 FP4 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a long URL argument to an unspecified method, aka PRAD7JTNHJ.

CWE-119 - Buffer Overflow

Buffer overflow attacks involve data transit and operations exceeding the restricted memory buffer, thereby corrupting or overwriting data in adjacent memory locations. Such overflow allows the attacker to run arbitrary code or manipulate the existing code to cause privilege escalation, data breach, denial of service, system crash and even complete system compromise. Given that languages such as C and C++ lack default safeguards against overwriting or accessing data in their memory, applications utilizing these languages are most susceptible to buffer overflows attacks.
