September 9, 2019 Doug Bidwell
Good people of IBM i Land, in this latest edition of the IBM i PTF Guide you will see that there are new HIPERs and Security groups for all four of the operating system releases. If you are on V7R1, please read the HIPER cover letter – there are over 100 fixes that are not on the cume and lots of dependencies. Please read and heed! And note that the PTFs for vulnerabilities below are not in this new Security group!
There is a new DB2 for IBM i group for version 7.2, and a new version of MGTools is also available. There is also a new Security Bulletin: Vulnerability CVE-2019-1543 in OpenSSL affects IBM i.
- Release 7.1 – SI70818 (Not in latest Security group)
- Release 7.2, 7.3 and 7.4 – SI70819 (Not in latest Security group)

Also, thanks to Pat Kelley for contributing the new ACS and SSL links.
