SKP,

Notes security architecture isn't bad at all, basically this threat
is because of wrong configuration at the beginning of the notes
installation. Solution is if you goto database access control list,
you can configure it there.

Yes this information can be used for exploiting, such as brute forcing
since there is global login attempt checks, you are still secure.

On a notes client
its possible to click that page put not through http.

Basically Lotus Notes' admin pages are built into using (a most part of)
LotusScript language, similar to visual basic that is ONLY accessible
by Notes Client not by any browser. Browser supports only
HTML/JavaScript and Formula Language
(that's compiled into JavaScript and HTML on server), that's why its
showing nothing in browser, but Notes client, hence unclickable.

Is there a workaround url that bypasses that page?

We are doing a penetration testing for a client who has lotus notes. We
were able to access the catalog.nsf file from the web and other admin
pages such as the user list page, connections page database page etc.

Question is, is this just a low level threat or can a hacker use this
info to hack further. Also clicking on some of the admin pages brings up
a default page which says click here to access page. On a notes client
its possible to click that page put not through http. Is there a
workaround url that bypasses that page?

SKP
