DescriptionThe remote host is missing AIX PTF U857721, which is related to the security of the package bos.net.tcp.client.
If an AIX machine has IPv6 address configured, and if a malformed IPv6 packet in a specific format is sent to that machine, the machine can hang while processing that packet. The problem can happen only if an IPv6 address is configured on any of the network interfaces.
