IBM Lotus Notes/Domino insecure permissions
|lotus-notesdomino-insecure-permissions (37361)||Low Risk|
IBM Lotus Notes and Lotus Domino could allow a local attacker to obtain sensitive information. The access permission of "Everyone" is assigned to shared memory processes by default. In a shared Notes environment, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to obtain sensitive information.
