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


Synopsis :

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its version, the installation of DB2 10.5 on the remote
host is prior to Fix Pack 3a. It is, therefore, reportedly affected by
one or more of the following vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified error exists related to handling
malformed certificate chains that could allow denial
of service attacks. (CVE-2013-6747)

- A build error exists related to libraries in insecure
locations that could allow a local user to carry out
privilege escalation attacks. Note this issue does not
affect the application when running on Microsoft
Windows operating systems. (CVE-2014-0907)

- An unspecified error exists related to the TLS
implementation that could allow certain error cases to
cause 100% CPU utilization. (CVE-2014-0963)

(CVE-2014-0907) involving the command 'sqllib/bin/db2chglibpath'.
