Synopsis :

The remote database server is affected by multiple issues.

Description :

According to its version, the installation of DB2 on the remote host
allows unsafe access to several setuid-root binaries. A local user
may be able to leverage this to crash the affected database server or
possibly even gain root-level access.

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