Status and Recommendation:
CA has made patches available for all affected products. These

Simply select the patch appropriate to the platform, and the
installed version of CAM, and follow the patch application
instructions. You should also review the product home pages on
SupportConnect for any additional product specific instructions.

Solutions for CAM:
Platform Solution
Windows QO89945
NetWare QO89943

How to determine if you are affected:

Determining CAM versions:
Simply running camstat will return the version information in the
top line of the output on any platform. The camstat command is
located in the bin subfolder of the installation directory.

The example below indicates that CAM version 1.11 build 27
increment 2 is running.

CAM – machine.ca.com Version 1.11 (Build 27_2) up 0 days 1:16

Determining the CAM install directory:

Windows: The install location is specified by the %CAI_MSQ%
environment variable.
Unix/Linux/Mac: The /etc/catngcampath text file holds the CAM
install location.

The affected listening port can be disabled by creating or
updating CAM's configuration file, CAM.CFG, with the following
entry under the "*CONFIG" section:


The CA Messaging Server must be recycled in order for this to take
effect. We advise that products dependent upon CAM should be
shutdown prior to recycling CAM. Once dependent products have
been shutdown, CAM can be recycled with the following commands:

On Windows:
cam start

On NetWare:
load camclose
load cam start

Once CAM has been restarted, any CAM dependent products that were
shutdown can be restarted.
