	   CERT Note:     583184        (regression)
	   CERT Advisory: CA-2001-18    (regression)

	2. Summary
	
	   In July 2001, the PROTOS protocol testing group at the University
	   of Oulu in Finland released an LDAP protocol test suite that exposed
	   flaws in LDAP implementations from multiple vendors.  [1]
	
	   Lotus Domino R5.0.7 and earlier were affected by the PROTOS LDAP
	   issues, resulting in buffer overflows and denial of service against
	   the Domino server.  Lotus addressed these issues in Domino R5.0.7a,
	   released May 18th 2001.  [2]
	
	   While regression testing the pre-release and beta versions of Lotus
	   Domino R6 with the PROTOS LDAP test suite, we found that these
	   releases were vulnerable to the issues PROTOS discovered.
	
	5. Detailed analysis
	
	   Credit for discovery of this vulnerability goes to the PROTOS
	   project.  Please see their LDAP test suite page for more
	   information. [1]

SOLUTION

	4. Solution
	
	   Users running R6 beta and pre-release builds should upgrade to R6.0
	   Gold or higher.  Due to other vulnerabilities discovered in R6.0
	   Gold, you should consider upgrading to R6.0.1, which was released in
	   February 2003.
	
	   Users running R5.0.7a and higher are not affected.
	
	   Domino incremental installers may be downloaded from the following
	   URL (which has been wrapped):
