[ Edited ]



Does anyone have any idea where to get more information on this defect number?

MD5 and 96-bit algorithms may be disabled by operating the system in    
FIPS mode. However,FOS does not provide an independent user-configurable
mechanism to enable/disable specific cryptographic algorithms. Brocade  
defect number 508980 has been opened to track this issue.          


I tried searching. But the first link is broken



Thank you in advance.

Hi there,


The fix for DEFECT 508980 seems to be expected for FOS 7.4.


The link that you mention seems to be broken; it redirects you to the Fabric OS Security Vulnerability Report



Best regards,
