July 9, 2018 Doug Bidwell
We are running the IBM i PTF Guide in the Monday edition of The Four Hundred this week, just to keep you on your toes during our summer holiday schedule. There was a lot of stuff going on even with the July 4 holiday in the United States impending before we went to press.
This week we have new Groups for HIPER and Java, and, a new version of QMGTOOLS, for all three releases. The Java groups for each release have significant vulnerabilities. The fixes are included in the latest Java group for each release:
- Release 7.3 – SF99725 level 9
- Release 7.2 – SF99716 level 17
- Release 7.1 – SF99572 level 32
For further information, check the group link in the guide, or, click this link.
There is also a security bulletin for multiple vulnerabilities in Node.js affect that IBM i. The fix for release 7.1, 7.2, and 7.3 is the same number PTF is applicable for all 3 OS releases): 5733OPS Option 10 (Node.js version 6): SI67795. Release 7.2 and 7.3 support Node.js version 8.
