After recent news of this vulnerability, and a customer providing valuable
information and potential relevance on our forum, we have put together a
Fixlet for disabling the certificate. We have contributed this Fixlet back
to our forum and bigfix.me communities.


Only preliminary testing was completed, so please provide feedback on the
forum so that the Fixlet can potentially be improved. We would like to
thank the BigFix community for their contributions to this content.
