IBM DB2 9.1 < Fix Pack 7 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 36216


The remote database server is affected by multiple issues.


According to its version, the IBM DB2 server running on the remote host is prior to 9.1 Fix Pack 7. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- In certain situations an INNER JOIN predicate is applied before the OUTER JOIN predicate, which could result in disclosure of sensitive information. (JR31886)

- It may be possible to connect to DB2 servers without valid passwords, provided LDAP-based authentication is used, and the remote LDAP server is configured to allow anonymous binds. (JR32272)

- By connecting to a DB2 server using a third-party DRDA client that uses IPV6 address format of the correlation token, it may be possible to crash the remote DB2 server. (IZ36683)


Apply IBM DB2 Version 9.1 Fix Pack 7 or later.
