A flaw in the http-domino-enum-password NSE script for Nmap was discovered . If this script was run with the non-default domino-enum-passwords.idpath parameter against a malicious server, it could cause an arbitrarily named file to be written to the client system with the permissions of the user running the nmap client.
This was corrected in upstream version 6.40  (svn r31576). This svn revision also updates a few other NSE scripts for extra safety.
