AIX 7.2 TL 0 : nettcp (IV86119) (SLOTH)

This script is Copyright (C) 2016-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote AIX host is missing a security patch.

Description : The TLS
protocol could allow weaker than expected security caused by a
collision attack when using the MD5 hash function for signing a
ServerKeyExchange message during a TLS handshake. An attacker could
exploit this vulnerability using man-in-the-middle techniques to
impersonate a TLS server and obtain credentials. IBM AIX does not
require the newest version of TLS by default which could allow a
remote attacker to obtain sensitive information using man in the
middle techniques.
