To wake up! A new security vulnerability exists in the IBM i Java stack. See Security Bulletin: IBM Java SDK and IBM Java Runtime for IBM i are affected by CVE-2021-234, which you can read on this link. The IBM i Group PTF numbers containing the fix for the CVE follow. Future group PTFs for Java will also contain the fix for this CVE:

  • Version 7.4: SF99665 level 13
  • Version 7.3: SF99725 level 24
  • Version 7.2: SF99716 level 34

To help you with the Log4j security vulnerability, we have created an additional spreadsheet in addition to the IBM i PTF Guide which contains the latest information on what to worry about and what to do about this vulnerability. You can download the Log4j spreadsheet on this link.

And just another reminder that there is a new version of Navigator for i, which you can read more about on this link. This modern user interface can be accessed from http://hostname:2002/Browser.
