CVE ID: CVE-2012-2203

Description:
IBM Global Security Kit (GSKit) versions before 8.0.14.22, used in IBM Rational RequisiteWeb and other products, use the PKCS #12 file format for certificate objects without enforcing file integrity. This makes it easier for remote attackers to spoof Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) servers.

CVSS Base Score: 5.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/77280 for the current score.
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:N)
