IBM Rational Host On-Demand provides an IBM JRE that is based on the Oracle JRE as part of its server package for clients to download and install on client machines. There are vulnerabilities that can occur when the affected JRE is installed as the system JRE. Oracle has released October 2012 critical patch updates (CPU) which contain security vulnerability fixes and the IBM JRE that Rational Host On-Demand ships is affected.
IBM JRE shipped with Host On-Demand 220.127.116.11 through 18.104.22.168.
Customers should download the Host On-Demand Version 11.0.7 release from Fix Central and update the existing Host On-Demand.
