Affected Products and Versions

Affected Product(s)Version(s)
IBM Tivoli Monitoring6.3.0.7 (up to Service Pack 15)


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 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.



How to acquire fix

*The CVSS Environment Score is customer environment specific and will ultimately impact the Overall CVSS Score. Customers can evaluate the impact of this vulnerability in their environments by accessing the links in the Reference section of this Security Bulletin.


According to the Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST), the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) is an "industry open standard designed to convey vulnerability severity and help to determine urgency and priority of response." IBM PROVIDES THE CVSS SCORES ""AS IS"" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. CUSTOMERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ASSESSING THE IMPACT OF ANY ACTUAL OR POTENTIAL SECURITY VULNERABILITY. In addition to other efforts to address potential vulnerabilities, IBM periodically updates the record of components contained in our product offerings. As part of that effort, if IBM identifies previously unidentified packages in a product/service inventory, we address relevant vulnerabilities regardless of CVE date. Inclusion of an older CVEID does not demonstrate that the referenced product has been used by IBM since that date, nor that IBM was aware of a vulnerability as of that date. We are making clients aware of relevant vulnerabilities as we become aware of them. "Affected Products and Versions" referenced in IBM Security Bulletins are intended to be only products and versions that are supported by IBM and have not passed their end-of-support or warranty date. Thus, failure to reference unsupported or extended-support products and versions in this Security Bulletin does not constitute a determination by IBM that they are unaffected by the vulnerability. Reference to one or more unsupported versions in this Security Bulletin shall not create an obligation for IBM to provide fixes for any unsupported or extended-support products or versions.
