Synopsis :

The remote Linux host has a library installed that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote Linux host has a version of IBM Global Security Kit prior

following vulnerabilities :

- An error exists related to the implementation of the
Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) that
could allow nonce disclosure via the 'FLUSH+RELOAD'
cache side-channel attack. (CVE-2014-0076)
