The remote AIX host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.
The remote host is missing AIX PTF U849490, which is related to the
security of the package bos.net.tcp.client.
AIX could allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service, caused
by an error when the TCP large send offload option is enabled on a
network interface. By sending a specially crafted sequence of packets,
an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a kernel panic.
