If you use a search engine such as Google or Yahoo to search for “Notes uninstall”, a link to the URL “” will show up in the top 2 or 3 results (this is as of May 21, 2020). The site claims to offer an “effective solution to completely uninstall” IBM Lotus 8.5.2.   Upon clicking the link, you will be taken to a legitimate-looking page offering several methods for uninstalling the software. Do not click on any of the download links; doing so will initiate the download of Trojan Horse malware onto your computer.

HCL is providing this information to you in the hope it will be helpful and to inform you of the risk identified above.
