IBM Notes & Domino are not vulnerable to OpenSSL "Heartbleed" bug (CVE-2014-0160)

AbstractInformation is circulating describing a method called "Heartbleed," which exploits a vulnerability caused by a design error in OpenSSL. This technote provides confirmation that IBM Notes and Domino are not susceptible to the Heartbleed attack. ContentIBM Notes and Domino are not vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug because they do not use OpenSSL as the basis of the SSL stack in the products. Note that this includes both the Domino SSL stack as well as the TLS implementation supported by the IBM HTTP Server in 9.0. Notes Traveler is also not affected.

Httpd.cnf deleted during Domino server upgrade

IBM TechNote

ProblemYou upgrade seven Domino servers to 9.0.1 and six of them lose their Httpd.cnf file during the upgrade. As the upgraded servers initialized, the following was recorded in log.nsf:
HTTP Server: Using Web Configuration View
HTTP Server: Unable to read httpd.cnf
HTTP Server: Shutdown

Neither the dominoinstall.log or upgrade.log made any reference to deleting this file.

Cause It was discovered that after the upgrade the \domino\icons folder was missing. The servers that did not lose the httpd.cnf file still had their \domino\icons folder.

The "Web Services Data Files" option was not selected during the install. Deselecting this option will remove the files specific to HTTP from the previous installation, specifically, the httpd.cnf file.

Resolving the problemAs a workaround, copy the httpd.cnf from another server to the other six servers. Use caution when you uncheck available options during installation. Previously set options will be removed if not selected.

Changing settings in Ephox EditLive for IBM Connections

Changes for the Ephox EditLive RTE can easily be done by modifying settings in the configuration files located here:

 < IBM Connections shared data>/customization/javascript/ephox/editlive/

For example changing the default font ( which has to be done in the CSS file ).

After some modification you only have to clear your browser cache, reload the current page ( e.g. the Wikis ) and open the editor again and voila => all modifications are displayed.
