Submission + - Password exposure in Lotus Notes (heise-security.co.uk)

juct writes: "A debug function in version 5 and up of Lotus Notes can be used to write a file containing the new password in plain text when a user password is changed. This function has been designed to bring more transparency into password quality verification. If two additional lines are entered in the Notes.INI configuration file, Notes will log the evaluation. Accordings to heise Security the configuration change can even be activated from remote by an administrator."
