Zimbra 8.8.15 Patch 9 Released

Postby L. Mark Stone » Thu Apr 23, 2020 3:14 pm

Patch 9 is out, but the Release Notes are incomplete.

The Blog Post (https://blog.zimbra.com/2020/04/new-zim ... le-patch-9) points out that OpenLDAP, ClamAV and SpamAssassin all get version updates in this Patch, to address a number of unranked Security CVEs.

The Patch Release Notes however (https://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/Zimbra_Releases/8.8.15/P9) make no mention of these CVEs nor that these three components are getting version upgrades.

Since many of us make adjustments to Zimbra's anti-spam components' settings, now would be a good time to carefully document (if you haven't already) your changes so that you can reapply them if needed after applying the Patch. And as always, probably a good idea to test this upgrade in a lab before applying it to your production system.

Please also consider using this thread to post your update challenges and successes.

Best regards to all,
Mark

I believe the release notes have been updated to contain this information. Thanks Mark!

Thank you for sharing the information.

I've already patched a testing environment and I'm testing it.
My best regards,

Test upgrades completed OK so I upgraded our BSP hosting farm this evening from Patch 8 to Patch 9 and experienced only one (non-Zimbra) issue: syslogging on the logger host stopped working.

A rerun of zmsyslogsetup and a restart of rsyslog just on the logger host put things back to right. Ubuntu Server 18.04. YMMV.

Hope that helps,
Mark

Just another data point, upgrade home server to P9 without issue,
