IBM i PTF Guide, Volume 20, Number 45
November 14, 2018 Doug Bidwell
We are winding down to the final seven weeks of the year, which means that we have just seven PTF guides to go in 2018! That being said, news on the PTF front continues to be sparse. Case in point, another week of no new defectives. Of course, you never know what next week will bring, but in the meantime, let’s look at what did happen this week. We got a new security bulletin and learned that IBM i is affected by networking BIND vulnerability CVE-2018-5740. The associated remediating PTFs are: Release 7.3 – SI68466; Release 7.2 – SI68467; Release 7.1 – SI68478. You can get more information on that security brief at this link.
Here’s a look at the defective PTF rundown (the last defective for each release):
