Synopsis :

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its version, the installation of IBM DB2 9.7 running on
the remote host is affected by one or more of the following issues :

- The 'MODIFIED SQL DATA' table function is not dropped
when a definer loses required privileges to maintain
the objects. (IC63548)

- A privilege escalation vulnerability exists in the
DB2STST program (on Linux and Unix platforms only).

- A malicious user could use the DB2DART program to
overwrite files owned by the instance owner. (IC65762)

- The scalar function REPEAT contains a buffer overflow
that a malicious user with a valid database connection
could manipulate, causing the DB2 server to trap.

- Special group and user enumeration operation on the DB2
server or DB2 Administrator Server (DAS) could trap
when running on Windows 2008. (IC66643)

- It is possible to execute non-DDL statements even after
an user's DBADM authority has been revoked. (IC66815)

- If the database configuration parameter 'AUTO_REVAL' is
set to 'IMMEDIATE', system granted privileges are not
regenerated. (IC67008)

- 'Monitor Administrative Views' available in SYSIBMADM
schema are publicly viewable. (IC67819)

- A weakness in the SSL v3 / TLS protocol involving
session renegotiation may allow an attacker to inject
an arbitrary amount of plaintext into the beginning of
the application protocol stream, which could facilitate
man-in-the-middle attacks. (IC68055)

- By sending a specially crafted packet to the Tivoli
Monitoring Agent (KUDDB2), which listens on TCP port
6014 by default, it may be possible to trigger a denial
of service condition. (IC68762)
