Synopsis :

The remote database server is affected by a denial of service issue.

Description :

According to its version, the installation of DB2 on the remote host
may crash when it attempts to process a specially crafted CONNECT or
ATTACH request sent during the initial handshake process. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can leverage this issue to overflow a
buffer and crash the database instance, thereby denying service to
legitimate users.
