- --------------------------BEGIN INCLUDED TEXT--------------------
IBM XIV Storage System Gen3 (MTM 2810-114, 2812-114) - access to open TCP ports
might lead to loss of access to data
On IBM XIV Storage System Gen3 (MTM 2810-114, 2812-114) that is running code
level 11.0.1.a or lower, there are open TCP ports which if accessed might lead
to system outage.
CVE ID: CVE-2012-2167
In systems with the affected code levels there are a set of TCP ports that were
used for software error injection during test cycles. Those ports are not
needed for normal operation, and therefore have now been closed. Under certain
circumstances, data injected into the previously open ports could cause loss of
access to data. Accordingly, installation of this update is recommended.
