IBM i PTF Guide, Volume 20, Number 33
August 22, 2018 Doug Bidwell
This week in IBM i PTF Land is sponsored by snakes. Pythons to be specific. To be more precise, there are vulnerabilities in Python that make it susceptible to denial of service attacks.
Here are the fixes to take care of that. Release 7.1, 7.2 and 7.3 have the same number PTF applicable for all three OS releases:
- 5733OPS Option 2 SI68164
- 5733OPS Option 4 SI67937
Release 7.2 and 7.3 support Python version 2.7/3.6 in the RPM format. You can find out more at this link.
New links this week in the IBM i PTF Guide:
- Cannot Save Files to QDLS With SMB2 Enabled
- Python version 2.7 rpm
- Python version 3.6 rpm
At a glance. Once again, here is the defective rundown – the last defective for each release. Once again, there is no change as of this week (August 18), so I know they are going for a record!!!
