    and IPSec protocols and
    other protocols and products, have a birthday bound of approximately
    four billion blocks, which makes it easier for remote attackers to
    obtain cleartext data via a birthday attack against a long-duration

    in CBC mode, aka a "Sweet32" attack. (bsc#1027038)
