About the D4_4_ssl_security Patch
This patch addresses the following issue:
- On some occasions, the number of secure SSL connections (stat SYSTEM.SSL)
becomes high as the system is failing to close aborted incoming SSL connections
- When this happens, SSL access to the services becomes very slow and the GUI
becomes inaccessible due to time outs, this presents to the user as a 'blank
white screen'. This patch resolves this problem.
- Can prevent security attack.
- Installing/uninstalling the patch can briefly prevent users from using secure access to the services
