This script is Copyright (C) 2015-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

This plugin has been deprecated.

Description :

IBM PowerHA SystemMirror has a systems management feature (CSPOC)
which includes an option to allow users to change their password
cluster-wide. Once added to this list, a non-root user may be able to
exploit a vulnerability in one of the scripts shipped with the product
to switch user (su) to the root user.

This plugin has been deprecated and replaced with
aix_powerha_advisory.nasl (plugin ID 94674) to more accurately check
for multiple potential fixes.
