https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2018-1388
DESCRIPTION: GSKit V7 may disclose side channel information via 
    discrepencies between valid and invalid PKCS#1 padding. 
CVSS Base Score: 9.1
CVSS Temporal Score: See
    https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/138212
    for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2018-1427
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2018-1427
https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2018-1427
DESCRIPTION: IBM GSKit contains several enviornment variables that a local
    attacker could overflow and cause a denial of service.
CVSS Base Score: 6.2
CVSS Temporal Score: See
    https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/139072
    for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H)

CVEID: CVE-2018-1426
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2018-1426
https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2018-1426
DESCRIPTION: IBM GSKit duplicates the PRNG state across fork() system 
    calls when multiple ICC instances are loaded which could result in 
    duplicate Session IDs and a risk of duplicate key material.
CVSS Base Score: 7.4
CVSS Temporal Score: See
    https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/139071

CVEID: CVE-2016-0702
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2016-0702
https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2016-0702
DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL could allow a local attacker to obtain sensitive 
    information, caused by a side-channel attack against a system based on
    the Intel Sandy-Bridge microarchitecture. An attacker could exploit 
    this vulnerability to recover RSA keys.
CVSS Base Score: 2.9
CVSS Temporal Score: See
    https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/111144
    for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined

CVEID: CVE-2018-1447
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2018-1447
https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2018-1447
DESCRIPTION: The GSKit CMS KDB logic fails to salt the hash function 
    resulting in weaker than expected protection of passwords. A weak 
    password may be recovered. Note: After update the customer should 
    change password to ensure the new password is stored more securely. 
    Products should encourage customers to take this step as a high 
    priority action.
CVSS Base Score: 5.1
CVSS Temporal Score: See
    https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/139972
    for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N)

AFFECTED PRODUCTS AND VERSIONS:

    AIX 5.3, 6.1, 7.1, 7.2
    VIOS 2.2.x

    The following fileset levels (VRMF) are vulnerable, if the
    respective IBM Tivoli Directory Server (ITDS) or IBM Security Directory
    Server (ISDS) version is installed:
    For ITDS 6.2.0:    Less than 6.2.0.56
    For ITDS 6.3.0:    Less than 6.3.0.49
    For ISDS 6.3.1:    Less than 6.3.1.24
    For ISDS 6.4.0:    Less than 6.4.0.16

    Note: To find out whether the affected ITDS or ISDS filesets are  
    installed on your systems, refer to the lslpp command found in AIX
    user's guide.

    Example:  lslpp -L | grep -i itds
