To resolve this vulnerability, apply GroupWise 8.0 Support Pack 3 (or later).
Previous versions of GroupWise are likely also vulnerable but are no longer supported. Customers on earlier versions of GroupWise should, at a minimum, upgrade their WebAccess servers and associated Domains to version 8.0 Support Pack 3 in order to secure their system.
