This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its version, the installation of IBM DB2 9.8 running on
the remote host is prior to Fix Pack 5. It is, therefore, affected by
multiple vulnerabilities :

- 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 vulnerability
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.

- A security bypass vulnerability exists due to the
persistence of privileges when they're removed from
users. An attacker can exploit this to execute non-DDL
statements even if their privileges have been revoked.
(VulnDB 125198)

- An unspecified flaw exists that allows an attacker to
cause a denial of service condition when Self Tuning
Memory Manager (STMM) is enabled and DATABASE_MEMORY is
set to AUTOMATIC. (VulnDB 125199)
