This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its version, the installation of DB2 9.7 on the remote
host is older than Fix Pack 6 and is, therefore, potentially affected by
multiple vulnerabilities :

- A local user can exploit a vulnerability in the bundled
IBM Tivoli Monitoring Agent (ITMA) to escalate their
privileges. (CVE-2011-4061)

- An authorized user with 'CONNECT' and 'CREATEIN'
privileges on a database can perform unauthorized
reads on tables. (CVE-2012-0709)

- An unspecified error in the DB2 Administration Server
(DAS) can allow remote privilege escalation or denial
of service via unspecified vectors. Note that this
issue does not affect Windows hosts. (CVE-2012-0711)

- An authorized user with 'CONNECT' privileges from
'PUBLIC' can cause a denial of service via unspecified
methods related to DB2's XML feature. (CVE-2012-0712)

- An unspecified information disclosure error exists
related to the XML feature that can allow improper
access to arbitrary XML files. (CVE-2012-0713)

- An error exists related to the Distributed Relational
Database Architecture (DRDA) that can allow denial of
service conditions when processing certain request.
(CVE-2012-2180)
