IBM GSKit denial of service

ibm-gskit-cve20136747-dos (89863) The risk level is classified as HighHigh Risk

Description:

IBM Security Directory Server (ISDS) and IBM Tivoli Directory Server (TDS) are vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by an error in the Global Security Toolkit (GSKit) component. By initiating an SSL/TLS connection using a malformed certificate chain, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause the server process to hang or crash.
