How critical is this fix?

Impact Assessment
Impact Description
Critical

This is a maintenance release. This fixpack addresses vulnerabilities in OpenSSL, libcURL, and the Java runtime environment. Review the Security bulletins CVE-2014-5139, CVE-2014-3509, and CVE-2014-3511 (OpenSSL), CVE-2014-0139 (libcURL), and CVE-2014-4263 and CVE-2014-4244 (Java runtime) for more information. The release may also contain fixes for client-reported and internally found defects.

Definitions

Regression: An error in the Maintenance Delivery Vehicle (MDV) that produces incorrect or unexpected behavior causing a supported feature to stop functioning as designed.
This includes:

  • Coding errors that cause a regression
  • Documentation or packaging problems that cause a regression
  • Errors reported in a new function delivered in a MDV that cause a regression

Incomplete: An error in the MDV has not regressed, but does not work as designed.
This includes:

  • Fixed APARs which did not solve the original problem but did not break anything new
  • APARs reporting documentation errors, such as readme errors, that cause problems applying an MDV but do not lead to a regression

Notes:
  • Regression and incomplete APARs are considered fix-in-error or MDV-in-error
  • Definitions above apply only to valid APARs that result in product fixes (APARs returned as working-as-designed are not assessed for being fix-in-error)
  • Issues in major releases due to new functionality do not apply in this definition

There are no known regressions to report.
