IBM Rational ClearCase uses the OpenSSL component for establishing SSL
connections. ClearCase now ships an updated version of OpenSSL on Unix and
Linux platforms, and uses a new component called IBM GSKit on Windows which
also mitigates against the OpenSSL vulnerabilities.
CVE ID: multiple
Description: OpenSSL versions prior to 1.0.0 do not follow best security
practices and need to be upgraded. For a complete list of OpenSSL
Vulnerabilities by version, please refer to:
ClearCase 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 have been upgraded to ship with version 1.0.1C
OpenSSL. Prior versions of ClearCase shipped with OpenSSL version 0.9.7e. On
Windows platforms, ClearCase now uses the IBM GSKit component to perform SSL.
IBM GSKit includes the OpenSSL security corrections.
The OpenSSL component is used by ClearCase for making SSL connections for
OSLC-enabled UCM to ClearQuest. The OpenSSL component is also invoked if user
supplied Perl code uses ratlperl to make SSL connections.
These vulnerabilities are not relevant for the traditional ClearCase to
ClearQuest UCM integration.
CVSS Base Score: multiple. See http://www.openssl.org/news/vulnerabilities.html
CVSS Temporal Score:
CVSS Environmental Score: Undefined
Any supported platform.
Upgrade to ClearCase version

* 126.96.36.199: Download document 4033978
Keep the SSL connections used for OSLC-enabled UCM between ClearCase and
ClearQuest behind firewalls, and on your internal network.
