Description

The version of IBM TXSeries installed on the remote host reportedly waits for a 'forcepurge' acknowledgement from a CICS Application Server after an 'eci' response timeout. A remote, authenticated attacker may be able to leverage this issue to cause a denial of service or have some other unspecified impact.
