Affected Products and Versions

IBM Notes Standard Client 9.0.1 through Notes Standard Client 9.0.1 FP10

IBM Domino 9.0.1 through IBM Domino 9.0.1 FP10

All 9.0 releases of IBM Notes and Domino releases prior to those listed above.

Please note that IBM Notes and Domino 10 already include Java Version 8
SR5FP21.

Remediation/Fixes

Refer to the JVM tab in the technotes linked below for download links to a
single standalone Java patch that addresses these vulnerabilities.

Interim Fixes & JVM Patches for 9.0.1 Feature Pack 10 versions of IBM Notes,
Domino & iNotes

Multiple vulnerabilities in IBM Java SDK and IBM Java Runtime Version 8 SR4FP10
affect IBM Notes and Domino are also tracked as SPR ARUIB4TSEA.  For
unsupported releases, IBM recommends upgrading to a fixed, supported release. 
However, customer who remain on the following releases may open a service
request with IBM Support and reference SPR ARUIB4TSEA for a custom hotfix

Workarounds and Mitigations

None

About IBM i & Mac:

  o Domino for IBM i does not have a JVM shipped within it; JVM is installed at
    the OS level. JVM updates are provided via CUM PTFs and Java Group PTF. See
    the following links for more information: IBM i PTF | Java on IBM i
  o We do not ship a JVM installer for Mac because we do not bundle the JVM for
    Mac platforms. We use the JVM on the Mac OS. Therefore, any JVM updates for
    Mac would need to be obtained directly from Apple.
