DB2 < 8.1 FixPak 14 Multiple Vulnerabilities

This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote database server is affected by multiple issues.

Description :

According to its version, the installation of DB2 on the remote host
may crash when processing specially crafted SQLJRA packets because it
tries to dereference a NULL pointer in the function
'sqle_db2ra_as_recvrequest'. 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.
