The IBM Sterling Certificate Wizard is susceptible to a shared memory permission vulnerability.
The GUI implementation may create a shared memory segment with world read/write permissions. If such a memory segment is created, it might allow potentially sensitive data to be accessed and modified by a local user with direct access to the environment on which the JRE is running.
If you always run the Certificate Wizard on a single user system (e.g. a laptop), this vulnerability does not apply to you.
