Ops Center 12.4: Security Concerns with the IPS Pkg Server (Doc ID 2966480.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 08, 2023

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 11.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Python 3.7 is listed as end-of-life on June 27th, 2023.  However, this version of the software is used in the pkg server on Solaris and Ops Center.  Some security scanners flag this as a finding on port 11000, which IPS uses by default for pkg communications..

Follow up questions from the customer usually involve configuring components of Solaris or Ops Center to use Python 3.9 or later.


None, except that we have reached a documented end-of-life date.
