WBSP-AS-001760 - The WebSphere Application Server must install security-relevant software updates within the time period


Security flaws with software applications are discovered daily. Vendors are constantly updating and patching their products to address newly discovered security vulnerabilities. Organizations (including any contractor to the organization) are required to promptly install security-relevant software updates (e.g., patches, service packs, and hot fixes) to production systems after thorough testing of the patches within a lab environment. Flaws discovered during security assessments, continuous monitoring, incident response activities, or information system error handling must also be addressed expeditiously.

NOTE: Nessus has not performed this check. Please review the benchmark to ensure target compliance.
