Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: Users of zSecure Admin/Audit exploiting the  *
    *                 CARLa scripts with SELECT/EXCLUDE statements *
    *                 where a substring scan function (:) is used  *
    *                 in combination with the 'not equal' operator *
    *                 (<>, ^=).                                    *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The 'not equal' operator does not work  *
    *                      in combination with a substring scan    *
    *                      function.                               *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the PTF provided.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    The 'not equal' operator behaves as 'equal' when used in
    combination with a 'substring scan' function, for example:
    
    'SELECT DFLTGRP<>:RM' is effectively a 'SELECT DFLTGRP=:RM'.
    

Problem conclusion

  • zSecure Admin/Audit has been modified so that the substring
    scan function performs properly in combination with the 'not
    equal' operator.
