By Thomas Hampel | 1/4/24 1:54 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

SMTP Smuggling is a newly discovered attack to a number of mail server products and mail hosting providers. All mail transfer are based on the SMTP protocol that exists for years where server and client, or two servers talk to each other as defined in an internet standard (RFC 5321) Even with perfect antispam checking, SPF, DKIM, DMARC, etc in place, the vulnerability would allow sending spoofed emails, which can result in a huge problem.

Is HCL Notes/Domino using Oracle Java?  

By Thomas Hampel | 10/14/23 7:42 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

The short answer: No! Background: On January 23, 2023, Oracle announced (again) yet another new licensing model for Oracle Java that represents a dramatic price increase for large organizations. This can lead to interesting discussions since e.g., a 40,000-employee organization could be asked spending USD $2.5M annually just on Oracle Java alone. What Java version is used by Notes and Domino? Notes and Domino are providing the Java runtime as part of the product, so customers do NOT need to download or install the Java runtime environment separately. Since the JVM/JDK is part of the licensed product, it is covered under the product license of HCL or previously the product license of IBM. With the acquisition of the product by HCL, dependencies to IBM Java were removed and got replaced with OpenJDK effectively in version 11.0.0 of HCL Notes/Domino. Java updates are provided by HCL (and previously by IBM) typically as part of regular fix packs.
