DESCRIPTION
=====================================================================

This patch contains enhancements for IBM Security Virtual Server Protection for VMware V1.1.1.0

Details
------------

This patch fixes the following issues for IBM Security Virtual Server Protection for VMware Systems:

Under some conditions LMI pages do not work and always show "Loading" but do not show any contents on the page.

PVU calculations were wrong because their server model was not in the PVUTable.xml.

This patch also incorporates these previously released fixes for IBM Security Virtual Server Protection for VMware V1.1.1.0:

+ IBM Security Virtual Server Protection for VMware can be affected by several vulnerabilities in OpenSSL. These vulnerabilities include obtaining sensitive information and denial of service that might be exploited remotely by an attacker.

+On the IBM Security Virtual Server Protection for VMware System, SSH can be affected by these vulnerabilities because no authentication or specialized knowledge is required, and the vulnerabilities are remotely exploitable (CVE-2013-0169, CVE-2013-0166, and CVE-2011-4354).

+ The iptables on the security virtual machine (SVM) block traffic on eth1 interface, which is used by the anti-rootkit module to communicate with the ESX host to perform rootkit detection.
