Yesterday we announced that we had fixed a GroupWise security vulnerability. I am not posting to discuss the details of the vulnerability but I want to, again, give you pointers on how to update your system. First, the TID – here.
Lastly, how to update – well I already blogged on this so I am just going to link you there and then add a couple of fine points specific to this update.
A couple of differences on this one are that the POA’s all need to be updated before you can install the new client or new GWIA and WebAccess. So, from this point forwards, the 7.02 Hot Patch client can no longer connect to an older POA. This is kind of a stake in the sand as, after this, the rule will reapply, you’re just not going to be able to connect to a POA older than May 24 2007 with a client dated May 24 2007 or later.
