IBM i PTF Guide, Volume 21, Number 5
February 6, 2019 Doug Bidwell
In the latest iteration of the IBM i PTF Guide, you will see that there is a new Database Group for IBM i 7.3. Also, you will find that IBM Navigator for i is affected by the security vulnerability that is posted in CVE-2019-4040, which you can read about more at this link. The patches relating to this security vulnerability are handled by latest group for the HTTP server for IBM i 7.2 and 7.3.
As for new links in the Guide this week, there are none as yet – I am still catching up.
Here is a helpful tip: When you open a group PTF cover letter, it lists the PTFs in the group. If there is a “1000” in the right column, it means that that PTF is not in the cume, which is shorthand for the cumulative update. For instance, take a look at all the PTFs in the latest DB2 group (SF99703) that are not on a cume. . . .
The Guide at a glance: There are no new defectives this week (2/2/19), and we are still going for a new record! Here is the defective PTF rundown, which is the last defective for each release:
