Workarounds and Mitigations

For all affected releases, Domino administrators can help to protect their Domino servers against unauthorized access by strictly limiting the use of Java functions on the server through careful population of the Programmability Restrictions section on the Security tab of the Server document. In particular, IBM recommends prohibiting server access by untrusted code, Java or otherwise.
Likewise, Notes administrators can use Policies to configure Notes client Execution Control Lists to limit such attacks against the Notes client.
