+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+

Remediation/Fixes

The solution is to install a fix that includes an updated Java Virtual Machine
with fixes for the issues, and to apply fixes for WebSphere Application Server
(WAS).

    Apply the relevant fixes as listed in the table below.

    +-------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    |Affected Versions |                   Applying the fix                   |
    |------------------+------------------------------------------------------|
    |  9.0.1 through   |Install Rational ClearCase Fix Pack 2 (9.0.1.2) for   |
    |     9.0.1.1      |9.0.1                                                 |

    |     8.0.0.21     |                                                      |
    +-------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    For 7.0, 7.1, and earlier releases, IBM recommends upgrading to a fixed,
    supported version/release/platform of the product.
    Notes:
      + If you use CCRC as an extension offering installed into an Eclipse
        shell (one not provided as part of a ClearCase release), or you use
        rcleartool or CMAPI using a Java Virtual Machine not supplied by IBM
        as part of Rational ClearCase, you should update the Java Virtual
        Machine that you use to include a fix for the above issues. Contact the
        supplier of your Java Virtual Machine and/or the supplier of your
        Eclipse shell.

CCRC WAN server fixes

     1. Determine the WAS version used by your CCRC WAN server. Navigate to the
        CCRC profile directory (either the profile you specified when
        installing ClearCase, or <ccase-home>/common/ccrcprofile), then execute
        the script: bin/versionInfo.sh (UNIX) or bin\versionInfo.bat (Windows).
        The output includes a section "IBM WebSphere Application Server". Make
        note of the version listed in this section.
     2. Review the following WAS security bulletin:

        Security Bulletin: Multiple vulnerabilities in IBM Java SDK affects
        WebSphere Application Server July 2017 CPU

         and apply the latest available fix for the version of WAS used for
        CCRC WAN server.
        Note: there may be newer security fixes for WebSphere Application
        Server. Follow the link below (in the section "Get Notified about
        Future Security Bulletins") to subscribe to WebSphere product support
        alerts for additional Java SDK fixes.
    +-------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    |Affected Versions |                   Applying the fix                   |
    |------------------+------------------------------------------------------|
    |8.0.0.x           |Apply the appropriate WebSphere Application Server fix|
    |8.0.1.x           |directly to your CCRC WAN server host. No             |
    |9.0.0.x           |ClearCase-specific steps are necessary.               |
    |9.0.1.x           |                                                      |

Remediation/Fixes

The solution is to install a fix that includes an updated Java Virtual Machine
with fixes for the issues, and to apply fixes for WebSphere Application Server
(WAS).

ClearQuest Web/CQ OSLC Server/CM Server Component

 1. Determine the WAS version used by your CM server. Navigate to the CM
    profile directory (either the profile you specified when installing
    ClearQuest, or <clearquest-home>/cqweb/cqwebprofile), then execute the
    script: bin/versionInfo.sh (UNIX) or bin\versionInfo.bat (Windows). The
    output includes a section "IBM WebSphere Application Server". Make note of
    the version listed in this section.
 2. Review the following WAS security bulletin:

    Security Bulletin: Multiple vulnerabilities in IBM Java SDK affects
    WebSphere Application Server July 2017 CPU

     and apply the latest available fix for the version of WAS used for CM
    server.


Note: there may be newer security fixes for WebSphere Application Server.

Bulletins") to subscribe to WebSphere product support alerts for additional
Java SDK fixes.
