Connect:Direct for UNIX has addressed the applicable CVEs.

Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2019-4473

163984 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined

CVEID: CVE-2019-11771
DESCRIPTION: Eclipse OpenJ9 could allow a local attacker to gain elevated
privileges on the system, caused by the inclusion of unused RPATHS in AIX
builds. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to inject code and gain
elevated privileges on the system.

For versions previous to 4.2.0, IBM recommends upgrading to a fixed, supported
version of the product.

NOTICE:  IBM Connect:Direct (C:D) for UNIX v4.x on the Solaris Operating System
is a 32-bit application and uses the 32-bit IBM Java v1.7.  Support for IBM
Java v1.7 will end in April 2020 and IBM will not publish any further defect
fixes (including any security vulnerabilities) for IBM Java 1.7 beyond this
date.  While this does not affect the support status for C:D for UNIX v4.x,
clients running on Solaris are advised to upgrade to C:D for UNIX v6.0.x.x
(that uses IBM Java 1.8) as soon as possible to ensure that you continue to
receive any applicable defect fixes and security updates for IBM Java.  The
Solaris hardware and software requirements for CDU v6.0.x are the same as for
CDU v4.3.x. Please consult the IBM(R) Connect:Direct(R) for UNIX 6.0 documentation
for further details.
