Patch Installation for FFPS v6 and DocuSP v5
Because the FFPS Software Update tool is not available for the FFPS v6 and DocuSP v5 products, the patch must be provided by a Xerox CSE or Analyst. Please contact your local Xerox Service representative to request the patch file and if appropriate, schedule an action to have the patch installed. Because this patch is not mandatory and there is very little risk of vulnerability with FFPS, the action should be scheduled at a mutually-convenient time
