Please review the readme for a complete list of changes and defects that were fixed. Included in this list is a Microsoft security vulnerability that required updated components from Microsoft that are now included in this Hot Patch and were previously included in the 7.0.3 HP4 deliverable.
Here is the statement released to our customers, partners and sales organization.
"Microsoft has reported a security issue in their development Microsoft Active Template Library (ATL).
Microsoft has requested developers using ATL to evaluate their use of any ATL controls or components and to take immediate action to evaluate a possible vulnerability.
For further information please see Microsoft Security Advisory (973882)
Novell has thoroughly evaluated the use of ATL controls and components and have implemented Microsoft's fixes into the Windows Client of GroupWise 7.0.3 Hot Patch 4 and the Windows Client of GroupWise 8.0.1 Hot Patch 1. No other GroupWise components are vulnerable."
