application can enter an infinite loop when handling
certain operations related to floating point numbers.
(CVE-2010-4476)

- The Distributed Relational Database Architecture (DRDA)
contains an error that can allow denial of service
conditions when handling certain maliciously crafted
requests. (CVE-2012-0710)
