Poor Domino users. For folks who care about security, looks like now is when IBM’s disrespect (contempt) for its userbase bites us: new Poodle SSL v3 hack

Re: IBM Domino and SHA-1 / SHA-2 / SHA-256 (etc) ... that doesn’t sound promising, does it?

Hey, IBM! While you’re adding SHA-2 support across all Domino services, we expect to see HTTP/2 on the road map (soon)

Lotus Notes 8.5: How to open two emails at the same time
Craig Wiseman    

This is a simple little tip, but since it's a new(erish) thing, I thought I'd post on it.

Problem:
I have two emails I want to have open at the same time so I can compare or work with them.


Solution:
Find the first email in whatever folder it might be right click on it.

Choose "Open in New Window"

Find the second email in whatever folder it might be right click on it.

Choose "Open in New Window"
Image:Lotus Notes 8.5: How to open two emails at the same time






You now have each email opened in it's own window. Feel free to arrange them any way you choose:

What these are: GOOD Short time, targeted fixes to immediate issues Domino faces. This is some good, hard news. Updates on what's going to be done and timelines that work. Remember, the Poodle exploit is *at this point* proof of concept from Google, so we do have a window of time before it becomes a true issue. This is a very acceptable approach. As I told support... I'm fine with having a Poodle-resistant solution for Domino 8.5.x and moving to full TLS and HTTP in 9.x. Planned SH [read] Keywords: domino ibm development google security

[Background research: Who was Cassandra?] IBM announced some pretty bad news today... IBM's PAYING GlobalFoundries to take its chip making facility off its hands and IBM's given up on its HUGELY vaunted earnings plans. If you're interested in why this may be, take a gander at what Cringely been saying for a long, long time: The Decline and Fall of IBM (italics are mine) Even on the surface, IBM in early 2014 looks like a troubled company. Sales are flat to down, and ea [read] Keywords: domino ibm google wiki

This seems promising. OK, "promising" is way overselling it. Really, I guess it's not "promising" when the vendor acknowledges something that customers have been asking about for over 8 years. But that's not the point: Re: Poodle SSL vulnerability Greetings, We are currently working on statements regarding solutions for our clients with concerns around TLS and SHA-2.

For over 8 years, there's been post after post, PMR after PMR, IdeaJam idea after idea on upgrade Domino's SSL security in order to keep it current. (Here's a google search for: Please upgrade Domino SSL ) While they've been very busy apparently doing nothing about this, IBM's also been very quiet about it, although they have acknowledged that IBM's PAYING CUSTOMERS think it's important (see here). Now, we expect to hear something about how to fix this. SOON. It's not like IBM ha [read] Keywords: domino ibm ldd lotus google ideajam planetlotus planetlotus.org security

What do you say when you have bad news or no news... when you really should be saying something? One corporate take is to say as little as possible. (and hope the issue goes away, I guess). I've blurred the name of the source for this comment, because I don't want her (or is it him?) blamed for my extrapolation. Related to this issue we have an answer from our colleagues from Level 2 that even the future version 10 does not have the support for it yet - and there is an enha [read] Keywords: domino ibm

One of the great things about Notes and Domino has been the iterative growth of features. Well, that was true until about 4 years ago. Lately, a lot has been said about IBM's poor performance in keeping Domino's security stack up to date: http://planetlotus.org/c27d79 http://planetlotus.org/c28ea9 http://planetlotus.org/c2841d http://planetlotus.org/c2af15 http://planetlotus.org/c39b14 http://planetlotus.org/c2af24 http://www.ideajam.net/IdeaJam/P/ij.nsf/0/342557C4307F678D86257833004C [read] Keywords: domino ibm ldd lotus notes firefox google ideajam ideajam.net javascript planetlotus planetlotus.org security wiki

Google accelerates end of SHA-1 support - IBM’s letting its customers down
Thu, Sep 11th 2014 11:58a   Craig Wiseman
There's been a justifiable bit of a hullabaloo about security and IBM Domino (nee Lotus Domino). The biggest point lately concerning Domino's shameful lack of general support for modern Web security has hinged around Domino's support for only the SHA1 hash. What's sad about this is that "The first signs of weaknesses in SHA1 appeared (almost) ten years ago. - Qualys Blog". Ten years ago... back when IBM gave the appearance of caring about Domino's future. Now Google has announced [read] Keywords: administration domino ibm lotus notes community google interface planetlotus planetlotus.org security server smtp wiki xml

I posted about this here in 2011. Other good folks have been posting about this as well, here, here, here, here, etc. Simply put, Domino needs proper, modern TLS 1.3 support across all protocols, including SMTP, LDAP, HTTP, POP, IMAP, etc. What kind of shocks me is that there's any discussion about making this happen. If I had a product in this situation, the only meetings I'd be having is about WHEN the enhancements will be finished. IBM is all about security, except... when it isn [read] Keywords: domino ibm ldd lotus notes google ideajam ideajam.net javascript planetlotus planetlotus.org security smtp
