Local fix

Problem summary

  • APAR IT18767 - FixPack V5.3.1.12 introduced a regression which
                   caused unthreaded LQMAs to terminate unexpectedly
                   during startup. This has been fixed with this
                   release.
    APAR IT18769 - Within a threaded environment the name resolution
                   of a starting remote channel could cause delays.
                   This has been changed as such that the name
                   resolution is done in a more thread friendly
                   manner.
    APAR IT18770 - In rare cases a racing condition during LQMA
                   startup could cause a MQCONN request to fail with
                   RC 2195. This was caused due the starting agent
                   sending its registration request before the
                   Execution Controller has finished the creation
                   process. The request is then rejected since the
                   Execution Controller does not accept requests by
                   unknown agents. This has been fixed.
    APAR IT18593 - OSS environment variables which contain '_' were
                   not usable in the Guardian environment. This has
                   been changed as such that '_' can be substituted
                   with '¬' in a PARAM and will be correctly
                   interpreted.
    APAR IT18625 - SSL support has been changed to accommodate the
                   changes done by the latest OpenSSL update. This
                   offers an alternative way of SSL configurations
                   on HP NonStop, based on the procedure used on
                   IBM MQ for other platforms.
                   This update deprecates cipherspecs
                   TLS_RSA_WITH_DES_CBC_SHA,TLS_RSA_WITH_NULL_SHA256
                   and TLS_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA since they are
                   considered weak (see SSLUpdate.pdf).
    APAR IT18692 - OpenSSL library update to version 1.0.2j.
                   Mitigation for:
                   Fixed handling of OCSP Status Request extension
                   (CVE-2016-6304),
                   Prevention of possible out of bounds write
                   (CVE-2016-2182),
                   Refined limit checking preventing undefined
                   behavior(CVE-2016-2177),
                   Added missing length checks, preventing DoS risk
                   (CVE-2016-6306),
                   CRL sanity check (CVE-2016-7052).
