Abstract

Cognos Business Intelligence interim fixes address a security vulnerability affecting IBM Cognos Business Intelligence 10.2, 10.2.1, 10.2.1.1 and 10.2.2.

Download Description

The following interim fixes provide important product corrections related to a security vulnerability affecting IBM Cognos Business Intelligence 10.2, 10.2.1, 10.2.1.1 and 10.2.2:

  • IBM Cognos Business Intelligence 10.2 Interim Fix 16 (Implemented by file 10.2.1104.512)
  • IBM Cognos Business Intelligence 10.2.1 Interim Fix 13 (Implemented by file 10.2.5000.508)
  • IBM Cognos Business Intelligence 10.2.1.1 Interim Fix 12 (Implemented by file 10.2.5009.501)
  • IBM Cognos Business Intelligence 10.2.2 Interim Fix 7 (Implemented by file 10.2.6103.506)
Note - This Security Updater contains two instances of the Commons Collections library as .jar files (commons-collections-3.2.1.jar & commons-collections-3.2.2.jar). For this updater, the commons-collections-3.2.1.jar is the commons-collections-3.2.2.jar renamed.

It is recommended that you apply the appropriate fix to all affected environments. After installing the IBM Cognos BI security updater, follow the instructions in Updating the IBM Cognos gateway after security kit installation. It is important to update the IBM Cognos BI gateway as there could be a potential mix of 32 bit and 64 bit libraries resulting in errors when accessing the gateway.

IBM Cognos Business Intelligence 10.2.x Security Interim Fixes are now cumulative. The updater files provided contain all the security fixes applicable to 10.2.x releases made available since January 2015. The updater files identified in the Download section can be applied if security fixes made available previously (including those available since January 2015) have already been installed.

Please refer to the Security Bulletin for more details.
