January 11, 2023 Doug Bidwell
The New Year is always marked with celebration, but this year we also celebrate 25 years of the PTF Guide! The best way I can think of for you to celebrate is to make sure you are up to date on your PTF work.
We start off 2023 with a series of Security Bulletins. First up, IBM Navigator for i is vulnerable to log file access, obtaining file attributes, and SQL Injection attacks due to multiple vulnerabilities. Get the details HERE.

We also have some data to share when adding team members to new and existing cases, which you can find HERE.
