IBM Tivoli Directory Server NULL cipher weak security
|tds-nullcipher-weak-security (74303)||Medium Risk|
IBM Tivoli Directory Server could provide weaker than expected security, caused by the use of NULL-MD5 and NULL-SHA ciphers in the default Transport Layer Security (TLS) configuration. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to launch further attacks against the victim.
Refer to IBM Flash (Alert) 1591272 for patch, upgrade or suggested workaround information. See References.
