Multiple IBM products GSKit client hello message denial of service

ibm-multiple-gskit-hello-dos (75994) The risk level is classified as MediumMedium Risk

Description:

Multiple IBM products are vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by an error in the Global Secure ToolKit (GSKit). By sending a specially-crafted TLS Handshake Protocol client hello message, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause the affected application to crash.
