This Interim Fix resolves a possible security vulnerability that is reported in the FlexNet Publisher lmgrd license server manager as well as vendor daemons. There have been no reported exploits of this possible vulnerability, and to date it has not been reported by FlexNetSoftware users. Considering that IBM is not aware of any exploitation that has occurred, and that there is no exploitation code available, the likelihood of an attack is not as high as the CVSS score would indicate. IBM recommends to apply the iFix for RLKS 8.1.3 as soon as practical.
This vulnerability impacts the following releases:
If you are using version 8.0, 7.x or 2.0, you should migrate to RLKS 8.1.3 and apply the iFix. If you wish to remain at your current version, apply the mitigation action described in the mitigation document and migrate to RLKS 8.1.3 as soon as practical.
