IBM Verse On-premises Third Post: Updated Schema, New Features
Thu, Sep 22nd 2016 3:16a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Preface In my previous two blog posts pertaining to Verse On-premises (VOP), please note that a few of the items below were covered here previously. This serves as a metric to ascertain what key items are likely to remain. As cited here on July 18, 2016, IBM is fully committed to and on-track to make a year-end release for this product. IBM is discussing a lot of new VOP items at events in multiple cities/countries; for example MWLUG in Austin, TX. Much of what I reported on August 3, 2016 rema

Below is the completion of my interview with Barry Rosen, IBM Offering Manager for ICS. Enjoy! Notes 9.0.2 and Feature Packs * As indicated in the slide yesterday, the entire feature set of 9.0.2 will not be released into one Feature Pack (FP), but over four. Yes, the next four FPs will introduce what 9.0.2 would have offered. For some, this may be an eternity. Here is how I look at it: If we waited for 9.0.2 to actually be released, we would be looking at a late Q2 '17 release date at th

During ICON UK 2016 in London, I took some time to talk with the IBM Offering Manager for ICS covering IBM Notes, Domino, Verse on Premises, and Sametime, Barry Rosen. Our initial Q&A turned into about a 30 minute dialogue, which I found quite informative. With his permission, I am posting the more interesting parts of our conversation. Acknowledging Reality To Reset the Norm IBM recognizes --- as do their customers and BPs --- that over the previous three years, they became a rudder

What a great few days in London. Once again, the entire team there did a great job to offer the IBM Community an excellent learning opportunity. Thank you as well to the quality sponsors that committed to ensure this user group would happen. The organizers and the sponsors all deserve our gratitude. From that, I spoke at two sessions: Day 1 - co-presented with Keith Brooks Migration:Impossible... Not so Day 2 - co-presented with Serdar Basegmez Back from the Dead: When Bad Code Kills

Yesterday, IBM provided a preview call for select customers covering IBM Verse On-premises (VOP). Those in attendance were amongst the first to receive updated particulars on this product. I explicitly asked and received permission to provide this information. Here is a subset of relevant items discussed/presented.

Interger Overflow Vulnerability Identified in IBM Notes via Pixman Library
Mon, Jul 11th 2016 8:00p   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Although this vulnerability will not affect everyone, in talking with my customer's AVL, I decided to post it. The CVE description indicates, "Integer overflow in the create_bits function in pixman-bits-image.c in Pixman before 0.32.6 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via large height and stride values." The risk is low but real. Fortunately, the fix is easy. The risk profile for CVE-2014-9766 is available here, IBM

ICON US Slides
Mon, May 23rd 2016 3:00a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Happy to provide my slides for the excellent event called ICON US, run a couple weeks ago. A very challenging travel schedule since then with the Park Avenue viaduct fire halting commuter rail service north of Manhattan and another track fire three days later eight blocks south made for a tough few days (fortunately no one was injured during the initial inferno). So, without further ado, my updated slides for The BASHing Admins are available. Thanks to the organizers for running a great event an
