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 19 (Implemented by file 10.2.1104.523)

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.
