APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
A TLS Alert Record is built into a streams message.  When the
send of the TLS Alert Record fails due to the TCP connection
being in error state, the streams message is not freed,
resulting in a leak of the message.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA45978 :
-----------------------------
The code was changed so that when the TLS Alert Record send
operation fails, the streams message is freed.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA45978 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions


None.

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
