Affected Products and Versions

The following components of IBM Tivoli Monitoring are affected by this bulletin:

-Java (CANDLEHOME) IBM Tivoli Monitoring 6.3.0 through 6.3.0 fix pack 7 (including any service packs)  (JRE 7 and JRE 8) (CVE-2019-2989, CVE-2019-2975, CVE-2019-2964, CVE-2019-4732)
-Java (Tivoli Enterprise Portal client browser or webstart) IBM Tivoli Monitoring 6.3.0 through 6.3.0 fix pack 7 (including any service packs)  (All CVEs)

Remediation/Fixes

Java Tivoli Enterprise Portal Remediation:
These vulnerabilities exist where the affected Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is installed on systems running the Tivoli Enterprise Portal Browser client or Java WebStart client. The affected JRE is installed on a system when logging in to the IBM Tivoli Enterprise Portal by using the Browser client or WebStart client and a JRE at the required level does not exist. The portal provides an option to download the provided JRE to the system. 

This fix provides updated JRE packages for the portal server, which can be downloaded by new client systems. Once the fix is installed on the portal server, instructions in the readme file can be used to download the updated JRE from the portal to the portal clients.
