Abstract

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

  • IBM Cognos Business Intelligence 10.2 Interim Fix 28 (Implemented by file 10.2.1105.528)
  • IBM Cognos Business Intelligence 10.2.1.1 Interim Fix 24 (Implemented by file 10.2.5013.516)
  • IBM Cognos Business Intelligence 10.2.2 Interim Fix 21 (Implemented by file 10.2.6110.514)

It is recommended that the appropriate fix is applied to all affected environments. In each environment, after the appropriate fix is applied, please follow the instructions in the document 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 these Security Bulletins for more details:



If you are using IBM Cognos TM1, you should also apply IBM Cognos TM1 Security fixes or any later versions of TM1 Security Fixes. This will ensure TM1 and Business Intelligence continue to operate as expected.
