Synopsis :

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its version, the installation of IBM DB2 9.5 running on
the remote host is prior or equal to Fix Pack 9 or 10. It is,
therefore, reportedly affected by one or more of the following
vulnerabilities :

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)
