Zero Day Initiative Advisory 10-157 - This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of IBM Lotus Notes Email Client. User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must open a malicious email attachment. The specific flaw exists within the Lotus Notes file viewer utilizing the KeyView SDK to render a Word document containing a malformed shape. The application will calculate a length incorrectly when using it to copy data into an allocated buffer. This can lead to code execution under the context of the application.
