IBM Lotus heap corruption vulnerability

by Mario Miri on April 4th, 2003 IBM Lotus Domino and Notes Client are vulnerable to a heap corruption attack. This is possible due to a bug in NotesRPC service which is responsible for user authentication. An attacker can manipulate some authentication protocol header fields which results in arithmetic error which leads to denial of service condition.
