Medium Nessus Plugin ID 62786


The remote host has software installed that is affected by a spoofing vulnerability.


The remote host has a version of IBM Rational ClearQuest 7.1.x prior to / 8.0.0.x prior to installed. It is, therefore, affected by a spoofing vulnerability related to the included Global Security Kit (GSKit) and certificate objects.

Note that deployments not using LDAP are not affected and that PKCS #12 is not the default format used by ClearQuest.
