Disabling wink to be used as a potential attack vector

Seeing more and more attempts to use Wink as an attack vector (see example below). Looking into possibility to disable wink so that it wont cause any potential security risk.

    "I" did NOT open this Idea (see below). I have had a support ticket open CS0300620 for over 6 months now. I am seeing more and more attempts to use WINK as an attack vector for example trying to get to hosts file etc. We do not use Wink and wanted to understand how to mitigate this potential vulnerability. The response from support was that since the logs only show 404's "there was no vulnerability" .. my view has been (as a CISSP) to worry about the ones that may have actually worked and given a bad actor access to information that could be used to access the system.

    As we have already created an enhancement request in the HCL #Dominoforever Product Idea Portal.

    Our development team in future releases will come up with a plan, provided it is not hampering any existing functionality of Notes.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    If you think this is causing any form of vulerability, please immediately report this to PSIRT by opening a ticket. The ideation forum is not the right place for these kind of submissions.
