This script is Copyright (C) 2014-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its version, the installation of IBM DB2 10.1 running on
the remote host is prior to Fix Pack 3a. It is, therefore, affected by
one or more of the following vulnerabilities :

- The included version of GSKit contains an error
related to CBC-mode and timing that could allow an
attacker to recover plaintext from encrypted
communications. (CVE-2013-0169)

- 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)

Solution :

Apply IBM DB2 version 10.1 Fix Pack 3a or Fix Pack 4 or later.

Note that the vendor has posted a workaround for the build error issue
(CVE-2014-0907) involving the command 'sqllib/bin/db2chglibpath'.
Please consult the advisory for detailed instructions.
