I am getting this other ding on my security report.
I am not sure if it is a domino issue or if it is because of something
that is not 'bind specific' to a particular IP address but is creeping
over to include the IP address of my Domino servers on this lpar of IBM i.
Here is the ding:
3.2. Severe Vulnerabilities
3.2.2. Weak LAN Manager hashing permitted (cifs-generic-0005)
This system allows remote users to authenticate using the LAN Manager (LM)
password hashing mechanism. The LM hash can easily be cracked by a user
eaves-dropping on the network. Microsoft provides a more secure
authentication method called NTLMv2 that should always be used instead of
LM. NTLMv2 is available in Windows NT 4.0 SP4 and later (including Windows
2000, Windows XP, and Windows 2003). For more information, see MSKB
Affected Nodes: Additional Information:
xx.xx.xx.xx Server did not return extended security data.
where xx.xx.xx.xx is the IP address of the Domino server on this lpar of
We have not listed the 'regular' IP address of IBM i on this lpar as one
to be scanned.
Domino or IBM i bind non specific issue?
If IBM i bind non specific issue I suspect the resolution will be to
upgrade our QPWDLVL from 0. We're planning on going to 2 shortly anyway.
Already increased it to 2 on one sandbox lpar.
