Synopsis :

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its version, the installation of IBM DB2 running on the
remote host may crash when processing specially crafted SQLJRA packets
because it attempts to dereference a NULL pointer in the
sqle_db2ra_as_recvrequest() function. A remote attacker can send such
packets without authentication to deny service to legitimate users of
the application.

In addition, the fenced userid may be able to access directories
without proper authorization.
