Error description

  • When installing WebSphere MQ version 6.0, the files under the
    directory  /opt/mqm/licenses have permissions set to 777
    -rwxrwrxrwx. The permissions should really be 444 -r--r--r--.

Local fix

  • Manually modify permissions on the files in /opt/mqm/licenses
    to have permissions of 444 -r--r--r--.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users installing WebSphere MQ version 6.0 on a UNIX platform who
    have strict internal policies on the presence of world-writable
    files.
    
    Platforms affected:
    All Unix
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    As part of the install process, the installation scripts
    specifically set the permission of the files in
    /opt/mqm/licenses to 777 and therefore makes those files
    world-writeable.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The installation scripts have been modified so that a more
    restrictive set of permissions (444) is used for the files in
    /opt/mqm/licenses.
