IBM Spectrum Protect Plus incorrectly handles TLS certificates which can result in an attacker obtaining private key information for the uploaded certificate.
DESCRIPTION: Versions of IBM Spectrum Protect Plus prior to 10.1.12 (excluding 10.1.12) include the private key information for a certificate inside the generated .crt file when uploading a TLS certificate to IBM Spectrum Protect Plus. If this generated .crt file is shared, an attacker can obtain the private key information for the uploaded certificate.
