A short blog post here, but one that I felt needed to be done. If you aren't signed up to receive software notifications from IBM, then you won't have seen the following flash -
Yes, following on from the infamous "POODLE" vulnerability we now have "FREAK" (there's even another one doing the rounds at the moment called "Bar Mitzvah" but that doesn't impact TCR) and this is one you do need to be aware of as it impacts the versions of Cognos that we bundle with every version of TCR from 1.3 to 3.1. If you click into the link and scroll down,. there's links to the Interim Fixes that resolve this issue. We would recommend getting these on your environment as soon as is convenient for you.
Thanks for reading.
