A client application installed on the remote host is affected by an
information disclosure vulnerability.
The version of IBM Spectrum Protect Client installed on the remote
host is 5.5.x or 6.x prior to 220.127.116.11 or else 7.1.x prior to 18.104.22.168.
It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure vulnerability
when using the 'set password' client command due to the full text of
the command and the included password being written to the
instrumentation log file. This issue occurs when instrumentation
tracing is enabled. A local attacker can exploit this vulnerability to
Note that for version 22.214.171.124 and higher, instrumentation tracing is
enabled by default, but it can be disabled by using the
'ENABLEINSTRUMENTATION NO' setting. Prior to 126.96.36.199, instrumentation
tracing was enabled by using the 'INSTRUMENT:*' testflag.
IBM Spectrum Protect was formerly known as IBM Tivoli Storage Manager
