        A number of vulnerabilities have been identified in IBM Lotus Notes.


        The vendor has provided the following details regarding these
        "In specific situations, arbitrary code could potentially be executed 
        when the following types of attachments are viewed in Notes:
            LZH archive
            RTF document
            Applix Spreadsheets
            Microsoft Excel document
            Microsoft Office document
            Lotus Notes .prz file
            Lotus Notes .zip file 
        To exploit these vulnerabilities, an attacker would have to send a 
        specially crafted file attachment to users, and then users would have 
        to double-click the attachment and select "View".
        The specific issues vary depending on attachment type; however, they 
        are all related in how the buffer overflow denial-of-service could be 
        accomplished. In all cases, the issues involve viewing a malicious 
        attachment from a Notes client on a Windows-based machine. Domino 
        servers are not impacted." [1]


        The vendor recommends applying the relevant fix packs to correct these 
        issues. [1]
