My take would be to cross reference IBM notices with their "Fix". I'll bet
it's a scam at this point unless they can point to a specific error.

I am working with a customer who is getting some errors on their PCI scan.

They weren't getting any errors, then the company told them to turn on this
TCPIP Vulnerability Fix in Service Tools. Once that was done they got
three errors. One for port 80, one for port 443, and then a general
error. All three errors had to do with a "possible scan interference".

The report shows 0 of 3 scans were completed. They can't explain what a
"scan" is... at least to the customer. I would assume it's a GET or POST
but the website still works fine and I can't find anything in the HTTP logs
for their "scans". (I didn't expect to if zero scans were completed).

Has anyone heard of this "Fix" in SST, and what it does and what a "Scan"
from a PCI company is and why this would cause these errors?

I almost feel like they're getting scammed since they have to pay if their
PCI scans aren't all clear. They claim it's for credit card security but
they don't actually do any credit card activity on their system as far as I
know.. that's all 3rd party stuff.
