Question:

How can I stay current on what fix packs are available for each Db2 release, what Hiper APARs might be out there, and if there are any security vulnerabilities that I should know about?

 

Answer:

There are a couple of ways to stay on top of things in the Db2 world and you can choose if you want a passive approach (i.e. you need to go look) or an active one (i.e. the information comes to you).

The passive approach is simply the one where you visit these links to find the answers you need when you feel like knowing them:


The list of available fix packs

Security Vulnerabilities, HIPER and Special Attention APARs fixed in DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows Version 9.7

Security Vulnerabilities, HIPER and Special Attention APARs fixed in DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows Version 10.1

Security Vulnerabilities, HIPER and Special Attention APARs fixed in DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows Version 10.5

Security Vulnerabilities, HIPER and Special Attention APARs fixed in DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows Version 11.1

 

If you prefer a more active approach, then at the bottom of each of these pages is a description of how to sign up to receive notifications:

...or you can also go to the IBM Support page and sign up for My notifications.

 

Hope this helps!
