A database server installed on the remote host is affected by a remote
code execution vulnerability.
The version of IBM Informix Dynamic Server installed on the remote
host is 11.50.x or 11.70.x prior to 11.70.xC7. It is, therefore,
affected by a remote code execution vulnerability in the
'genxmlqueryhdr' and genxmlquery' XML functions due to an overflow
condition. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a
specially crafted statement, to cause a denial of service condition or
the execution of arbitrary code.
