Lotus Domino is vulnerable to XSS attack at the webadmin.nsf database
Lotus Domino is an IBM server product that provides enterprise-grade e-mail, collaboration capabilities, and custom application platform. Domino began life as Lotus Notes Server, the server component of Lotus Development Corporation’s client-server messaging technology. It can be used as an application server for Lotus Notes applications and/or as a web server. It also has a built-in database system in the format of NSF.

An attacker can inject XSS in the command form of quick console application in the webadmin.nsf database. Example:
insert this string in the “command” field

Business Risk
An attacker can use the XSS vulnerability by sending a link on malicious script to an unaware user via e-mail, messaging or social networks. The end user browser has no way of knowing that the script should not be trusted, and will execute the script. The malicious script can get access to any cookies, session tokens, or other sensitive information retained by your browser and used with SAP web applications like Portal, CRM, SRM and others. This script can even rewrite the contents of an HTML page. Thus, the attacker can gain access to the user’s session and gain control over business-critical information which can be accessed by the victim.
