The following sections outline issues resolved in this release:
Sentinel Log Manager 22.214.171.124 now includes Java 8, which includes fixes for several security vulnerabilities.
Sentinel Log Manager 126.96.36.199 provides software fixes for the following issues:
Issue: A vulnerability exists in SSL 3.0, which might allow the plaintext of secure connections to be calculated. For more information, see CVE-2014-3566 or https://access.redhat.com/articles/1232123. (BUG 902061 and 902233)
Fix: Sentinel Log Manager 188.8.131.52 fixes the vulnerability in the following ports:
The open ports now use only TLS protocol. Sentinel Log manager 184.108.40.206 disables all SSL 2.0 and SSL 3.0 protocols on these ports.
Issue: Sentinel Log Manager does not parse raw data if it is corrupt. Sentinel Log Manager stops receiving events from the remote collector manager and generates an out of memory error. (BUG 844087)
Fix: Sentinel Log Manager now drops the corrupt raw data and proceeds with the data collection.
Issue: After you upgrade Sentinel Log Manager to 220.127.116.11, when you initiate a search for events, the search does not complete and becomes unresponsive. (BUG 901524)
Fix: When you initiate a search, it now completes and displays the appropriate results.
You can upgrade to Sentinel Log Manager 18.104.22.168 from Sentinel Log Manager 1.2 or later. To upgrade to Sentinel Log Manager 22.214.171.124, see “Upgrading Sentinel Log Manager” in the Sentinel Log Manager 1.2.2 Installation Guide. After performing the upgrade procedure, restart the Sentinel Log Manager server to apply updates for SLES 11 Service Pack 3.
IMPORTANT:If you are upgrading Sentinel Log Manager appliance on an operating system prior to SLES 11 SP3, you must upgrade the appliance by using the zypper command line utility because user interaction is required to complete the upgrade. WebYaST is not capable of facilitating the required user interaction. For information about using zypper to upgrade the appliance, see “Upgrading the Appliance by Using zypper” in the Sentinel Log Manager 1.2.2 Installation Guide.
