Remediation/Fixes

Java (TEP) 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 into the IBM Tivoli Enterprise Portal 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 below provides updated JRE packages for the portal server which can be downloaded by new client systems. Once the fix has been installed on the portal server, instructions in the README can be used to download the updated JRE from the portal to the portal clients.
