Workarounds and Mitigations

In order to mitigate this risk, please follow the instructions in the below 
article from Microsoft which explains how to disable RC4.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2868725

This should be done on the machines where AppScan Standard is installed.

You should verify applying this configuration change does not cause any 
compatibility issues. Not disabling the RC4 stream cipher will expose yourself
to the attack described above. IBM recommends that you review your entire 
environment to identify other areas where you have enabled the RC4 stream 
cipher and take appropriate mitigation and remediation actions.
