Critical Bugs Sting Lotus Notes

Six critical vulnerabilities have been found in IBM's Lotus Notes, Big Blue and security firms announced Friday, including some that could allow attackers to hijack corporate systems if users simply viewed incoming e-mail.

Danish vulnerability tracker Secunia, which discovered the half-dozen bugs, tagged them as "Highly critical," its second-from-the-top alert rating, and said that some of the flaws would create buffer overflows, normally the only entry hackers need to start dropping their own code onto a compromised computer.
