The Best (practices) Session on Compliance Hits Lotusphere Today (Monday)!
Bill Malchisky    

Thrilled to be giving the only session on compliance in the Best Practices track. With scores of new regulations coming out of Washington and eDiscovery lawsuits climbing dramatically year-over-year, this session is quite timely. Join me today in the Swan Toucan, at 5:00 PM EST for an entertaining and information session to learn about the current trends and why you should take it seriously, lest your firm end up as a front page story for the wrong reasons. .

Title: BP204 Smart Plays with Compliance
Abstract:
Straight from the pages of THE VIEW Journal series on Compliance and the Lotus Admin, comes an enhanced session on the subject for Lotusphere. What is your company’s e-discovery plan? Do you even have one or is it sorely in need of a facelift? Together we will review current trends in compliance and team structuring to achieve success.

Get Access -- Voice of the Partner is Live
Wed, Dec 17th 2014 5:10a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
It is with great pleasure that I announce Voice of the Partner is in production! This tool provides IBM Collaboration Solutions business partners a new feedback continuity site to interface directly with IBM. As alluded to within my beta launch blog post, the past three months proved quite busy, culminating in this promised mid-December launch. Please understand this is a volunteer effort for me and the scope of BPs in good standing is massive. Thus, I am breaking the overall group down into [read] Keywords: administration collaboration connections ibm sametime community development interface skype twitter

IBM Mobile Connect POODLE Fix
Mon, Nov 3rd 2014 5:16a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
IBM just announced a couple of Technotes dealing with IBM Mobile Connect and POODLE. As this product is quite secure by design and a product that I enjoy as customers have a great track record with it in the field, the option to use TLS 1.0 - 1.2 is supported. The new SSL v3 security changes are implemented under APAR IV66131 -- available for IMC 6.1.5 and 6.1.5.1. Thus, if you have not upgraded IMC in the past ten days, then read below and plan your upgrade as appropriate. Here Are The Tec [read] Keywords: connections ibm mobile properties security

IBM Protector for Mail Security POODLE Fix
Wed, Oct 22nd 2014 2:20p   Bill Malchisky Jr.
A day after providing two Technotes on SHA-2, TLS, and POODLE for Domino, IBM released two documents to cover their Protector product. The bulletin covers three vulnerabilities and provides details on each. For the workaround document, mind the side effect mentioned at the bottom, as with some sites, this may introduce a risk assessment against delivery versus the exploit's vulnerability. 1.

Silent No More: IBM Makes Security Announcements on SHA-2, TLS, POODLE
Tue, Oct 21st 2014 9:12a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Today (21 Oct 14), IBM created a set of Technotes covering what appears to be a first step in helping soothe the customer and partner concern on the lack of offered direction and plan for resolving the SHA-1, TLS, and POODLE exploits that exist from years of community support and a yet to be implemented capability for increased security. I offer first step as no date for the patch is provided, just that they are stating their intentions and scope with a solution by year-end, which is my conjectu [read] Keywords: domino ibm inotes sametime xpages community google security server smtp

New SSL3 Exploit: The POODLE Is Here and Lifting Its Leg
Wed, Oct 15th 2014 3:38a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Here we go again... another blockbuster security exploit with another clever code name is announced. POODLE (Padding Oracle On Downgraded Legacy Encryption) CVE-2014-3566 specifically allows a man-in-the-middle style attack utilizing an SSL3 connection. Once again, Red Hat does a stellar job offering full details on background, technical specifics, and testing. Google's Online Security Blog post is exceedingly terse when contrasting. Here is what you need to know. What is It? CVE-2014-356 [read] Keywords: admin domino ibm applications enterprise firefox google linux microsoft network oracle red hat redhat security server

Linux Bash Bug - Shellshock - FINAL FIX RELEASED: Get Patched (AIX, Mac Too)
Mon, Sep 29th 2014 6:13a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Author's Note: Thank you to the ICS community for their tremendous support of my first Shellshock post. For those that read it early, you received critical information 14-72 hours before many sites released their stories. Several readers were fully patched before big names tweeted the issue. You were well ahead of the curve. Shellshock stories released over the weekend proved outdated and incomplete. This post provides better information faster. I am grateful for your support.

Linux Bash Bug - Shellshock - is Real: Get Patched (Mac Too)
Thu, Sep 25th 2014 6:13a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
This is ugly, but fortunately you just have to update to a fixed Bash version and your fine (for now). No need to reboot your system either. Red Hat is out early on this and escalated this appropriately. Their first round of updates got all but one exploit permutation, so they re-issued another bug identifier and are working to close it soon. Their initial timeline: Red Hat announced the bug on 14 Sep, had a proposed upstream patch seven hours later (0500h 15 Sep), backported it to Bash 3.0, [read] Keywords: domino apple application bug centos enterprise linux mac red hat redhat security ubuntu

It is that time again when the best pro golfers in The United States of America take on the best pro golfers in Europe for the coveted Ryder Cup.

Big News for ICS Partners!
Wed, Sep 17th 2014 10:15p   Bill Malchisky Jr.
After three years of working with IBM, I am proud to make the first public announcement of the beta milestone of a new IBM community feedback continuity tool entitled, Voice of the Partner. ICS is behind this at the highest levels and there is a strong desire within IBM to make this a success. Imagine that as a partner you have a tool where you can input ideas and concerns to IBM and receive a response in a meaningful way, that also ensures continuity of feedback throughout the issue's life [read] Keywords: ibm community

Using Sametime Mobile? Avoid iOS 8 for Now
Tue, Sep 16th 2014 6:12a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
IBM released a Technote yesterday on the issues with their Sametime Mobile applications on iPhones and iPads running iOS 8 -- due for release on Wednesday, 17 September 2014. My friends Gabriella Davis and Matteo Bisi both blogged on the Technote. Beyond that, there exists a post on The Sametime Blog offering a behind-the-scenes look as to the challenges therein, written by the on-premises Sametime Product Manager - Marlon Machado. In meeting Marlon previously, I can tell you he is a good guy an [read] Keywords: connections ibm sametime apple applications mobile planetlotus planetlotus.org
