Subject:  Monthly Platform Patch for the API Gateway - September 2016


Platform patches upgrade the underlying Red Hat packages and other (non-CA API) hardware/virtual appliance components where Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) have been raised.


These patches are delivered on a monthly basis, unless a CVE has been discovered that requires immediate attention. Currently, none of the CVEs raised have caused issues with the CA API Gateway or API Developer Portal, but they are being addressed as a preventative measure.


To bring the platform up to the most recent level, apply the most recent monthly patch.


We recommend that all appliance customers (both hardware or virtual) of our CA API Gateway/Developer Portal remain current with the platform patch level and the core application level.


You can download the latest monthly platform patch from the CA API Management Solutions & Patches page at . You can find the monthly platform patch applicable to your environment based on the operating system (i.e. CentOS, RHEL) and the API Gateway platform version (i.e. 9.x, 8.x, 7.x).
You can also call CA Customer Care at +1 800 225 5224 in North America or visit for the local number in your country.
