by these vulnerabilities. Remediation is not provided for product versions
that are no longer supported. IBM recommends that customers upgrade to
the latest supported version of products in order to obtain remediation
for the vulnerabilities.

Remediation/Fixes

VENDOR FIXES:
The recommended solution is to download the appropriate Interim Fix or Fix
Pack from Fix Central (What is Fix Central?) and apply for each affected
product as soon as possible. Please see below for information on the fixes
available for each product, version, and release. Follow the installation
instructions in the 'readme' documentation provided with each fix pack
or interim fix.

For Maximo Asset Management, Maximo Asset Management Essentials and Maximo
Industry Solutions 7.5:

VRMF		Fix Pack or Interim Fix					Download
7.5.0.6		Maximo 7.5.0.6 Interim Fix:				FixCentral
		7.5.0.6-TIV-MAM-IFIX001 or latest Interim Fix available	

For SmartCloud Control Desk 7.5:

VRMF		Fix Pack or Interim Fix				Download
7.5.0.3		Maximo 7.5.0.6 Interim Fix:			FixCentral
		7.5.0.6-TIV-MAM-IFIX001 or latest Interim Fix 
		available		

7.5.1.2		Maximo 7.5.0.6 Interim Fix:			FixCentral
		7.5.0.6-TIV-MAM-IFIX001 or latest Interim Fix 
		available		

If assistance is needed in determining the appropriate Fix Pack or Interim
Fix level, contact IBM Technical Support. It is recommended that you always
request the latest available Fix Pack or Interim Fix.

Due to the threat posed by a successful attack, IBM strongly recommends
that customers apply fixes as soon as possible.

Workarounds and Mitigations

Until you apply the fixes, it may be possible to reduce the risk
of successful attack by restricting network protocols required by an
attack. For attacks that require certain privileges or access to certain
packages, removing the privileges or the ability to access the packages
from unprivileged users may help reduce the risk of successful attack. Both
approaches may break application functionality, so IBM strongly recommends
that customers test changes on non-production systems. Neither approach
should be considered a long-term solution as neither corrects the underlying
problem.
