Workarounds and Mitigations

As a workaround until the fix has been applied, you can disable the conversion
of documents by removing the convertor entries in the file convertors.xml.

Please follow the steps below to implement the workaround:
1. Stop the IBM WebSphere Portal Server.
2. Find convertors.xml in <portal_server_root>/wp_profile/PortalServer/dcs
3. Backup this file to restore it after the fix has been applied.
4. Remove all <input> and <output> entries inside all <convertor> tags in the
convertors.xml file as shown in the following example.

Find all sections like this:
<convertor>
<input>application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document
</input>
<input>application/msword</input>
<input>application/vnd.lotus-wordpro</input>
<input>application/html</input>
<input>application/rtf</input>
...
<output>application/vnd.ibm-odcrte.zip</output>
...
<property name="class" value="com.ibm.wps.odc.convert.text.Stellent2RTE"/>
</convertor>

and change them like this:
<convertor>
<property name="class" value="com.ibm.wps.odc.convert.text.Stellent2RTE"/>
</convertor>

5. Restart the IBM WebSphere Portal Server.
