The TLS implementation in EMC RSA BSAFE-C Toolkits (aka Share for C and C++) sends a long series of random bytes during use of the Dual_EC_DRBG algorithm, which makes it easier for remote attackers to obtain plaintext from TLS sessions by recovering the algorithm's inner state, a different issue than CVE-2007-6755.
As with CVE-2007-6755 this vulnerability has been scored with the assumption the relationship between P and Q is known to the attacker. Please see CVE-2007-6755 [link: http://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2007-6755] more information.
