IBM solidDB < 6.30.0.37 Invalid Error Code DoS

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2011 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

The version of IBM solidDB database server installed on the remote
host is older than 6.30.0.37 (6.3 Fix Pack 3 / 6.3.37), and hence is
affected by a denial of service vulnerability. By sending a specially
crafted packet with a negative error code other than -1, it may be
possible for an attacker to crash the remote database.
