Description

The Lotus iNotes Upload Module ActiveX Control is installed on the remote Windows host. The installed version of the control is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability in the Attachment_Times() method. By tricking a victim into visiting a specially crafted page, an attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code on the host.
