Impacted products: Notes.
Severity: 2/4.
Creation date: 02/05/2013.
Identifiers: BID-59589, BID-59590, CERTA-2013-AVI-286, CVE-2013-0127, CVE-2013-0538, n.runs-SA-2013.005, swg21633819, VIGILANCE-VUL-12740, VU#912420.

Description of the vulnerability

The Lotus Notes client displays HTML emails, and enables by default :
 - Java applets
 - LiveConnect
 - JavaScript code

However, for example, if a vulnerable version of the JRE is installed on the system, the Lotus Notes client can be used as an attack vector.

An attacker can therefore send an email containing malicious Java, LiveConnect or JavaScript code, so it is executed when the victim open his IBM Lotus Notes mailbox.
