Abstract

Cognos Business Intelligence interim fixes address a security vulnerability affecting IBM Cognos Business Intelligence 10.2, 10.2.1, 10.2.1.1 and 10.2.2.

Download Description

The following interim fixes provide important product corrections related to a security vulnerability affecting IBM Cognos Business Intelligence 10.2, 10.2.1, 10.2.1.1 and 10.2.2:

  • IBM Cognos Business Intelligence 10.2 Interim Fix 18 (Implemented by file 10.2.1104.522)
  • IBM Cognos Business Intelligence 10.2.1 Interim Fix 15 (Implemented by file 10.2.5000.522)
  • IBM Cognos Business Intelligence 10.2.1.1 Interim Fix 14 (Implemented by file 10.2.5010.508)
  • IBM Cognos Business Intelligence 10.2.2 Interim Fix 10 (Implemented by file 10.2.6104.512)
It is recommended that you apply the appropriate fix to all affected environments. After installing the IBM Cognos BI security updater, follow the instructions in Updating the IBM Cognos gateway after security kit installation. It is important to update the IBM Cognos BI gateway as there could be a potential mix of 32 bit and 64 bit libraries resulting in errors when accessing the gateway.

IBM Cognos Business Intelligence 10.2.x Security Interim Fixes are now cumulative. The updater files provided contain all the security fixes applicable to 10.2.x releases made available since January 2015. The updater files identified in the Download section can be applied if security fixes made available previously (including those available since January 2015) have already been installed.

Please refer to the Security Bulletin for more details.

Installation Instructions

To download an interim fix

  1. Review the prerequisites.
  2. Download the appropriate compressed tar file using the links in the Download package section.

To install an interim fix on Linux or UNIX
  1. Copy the downloaded interim fix to the appropriate operating system.
  2. Change to the directory where you have copied the downloaded interim fix image.
  3. Enter the following command: gunzip <filename> .tar.gz | tar xvf –
  4. If you want to see the version of a component before you install it, unpack the tar file to disk, or read the table of contents of the tar file.
  5. Follow the installation instructions in the IBM Cognos Business Intelligence Installation and Configuration Guide.
  6. Apply the interim fix to all installations.
Note: GNU Zip can be obtained from www.gzip.org and GNU tar can be obtained from www.gnu.org/software/tar

To install an interim fix on Windows
  1. Change to the directory where you have downloaded the interim fix.
  2. Using your file compress and decompress utility, decompress the .tar.gz file. If you are using WinZip, select the option "use folder names".
  3. If you want to see the version of a component before you install it, unpack the tar file to disk, or read the table of contents of the tar file.
