Remediation/Fixes

IBM Notes and Domino - Multiple vulnerabilities in IBM Java (Oracle July 2014 Critical Patch Update) are also tracked as SPR KLYH9MKHPD. See below for download links for a single standalone Java patch that addresses these vulnerabilities.

    Note: 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.

- 9.0.1 Fix Pack 2
The fix is available for multiple platforms as a single standalone Java patch that covers Notes and Domino version 9.0.1 Fix Pack 2. See below for direct download links.
- 8.5.3 Fix Pack 5 and 8.5.3 Fix Pack 6
The fix is also available for multiple platforms as a single standalone Java patch that covers Notes and Domino versions 8.5.3 Fix Pack 5 and 8.5.3 Fix Pack 6. See below for direct download links.

Workarounds and Mitigations

Administrators can help to protect their Domino servers against unauthorized access by strictly limiting the use of Java functions on the server through careful population of the Programmability Restrictions section on the Security tab of the Server document. In particular, IBM recommends prohibiting server access of unsigned Java.

Likewise, administrators can use Policies to configure Notes client Execution Control Lists to limit such attacks against the Notes client.
