The IBM Lotus Domino LDAP server is vulnerable to a heap buffer overflow, which may allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service.
IBM Lotus Domino server software provides email, calendar, scheduling, and collaboration services. The LDAP component of Lotus Domino is vulnerable to a heap buffer overflow if it handles a DN (Distinguished Name) message with a string larger than 65535 bytes.
A remote, unauthenticated attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the LDAP server component or cause a denial of service.
