Vulnerability Note VU#963889

IBM Lotus Domino Web Access ActiveX control stack buffer overflow


   The IBM Lotus Domino Web Access ActiveX control contains multiple
   stack buffer overflow vulnerabilities, which may allow a remote,
   unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable

I. Description

   IBM Lotus Domino includes an ActiveX control called Domino Web Access,
   which is used for uploading files and clearing the cache on logout.
   The Domino Web Access is provided by the files inotes6.dll and
   inotes6w.dll for Domino 6.x, and dwa7.dll or dwa7W.dll for Domino 7.x.
   The Domino Web Access ActiveX control contains multiple stack buffer

II. Impact

   By convincing a user to view a specially crafted HTML document (e.g.,
   a web page or an HTML email message or attachment), an attacker may be
   able to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user. The
   attacker could also cause the web browser to crash.

III. Solution

   We are currently unaware of a practical solution to this problem.
   Please consider the following workarounds

   Disable the Domino Web Access ActiveX controls in Internet Explorer
   The vulnerable ActiveX controls can be disabled in Internet Explorer
   by setting the kill bit for the following CLSIDs:

   More information about how to set the kill bit is available in
   Microsoft Support Document 240797. Alternatively, the following
   text can be saved as a .REG file and imported to set the kill bit for
   these controls:
   Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
       [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX
       "Compatibility Flags"=dword:00000400
       [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX
       "Compatibility Flags"=dword:00000400

   Disable ActiveX
   Disabling ActiveX controls in the Internet Zone (or any zone used by
   an attacker) appears to prevent exploitation of this and other ActiveX
   vulnerabilities. Instructions for disabling ActiveX in the Internet
   Zone can be found in the "Securing Your Web Browser" document.
