IBM DB2 < 9.5 Fix Pack 4 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 39007


The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The IBM DB2 database server running on the remote host is prior to 9.5 Fix Pack 4. It is, therefore, affected by multiple issues :

- 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. (JR32268)

- It may be possible to trigger a denial of service condition by sending malicious 'connect' data stream.

- 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. (IZ38874)

- MODIFIED SQL DATA table function is not dropped even if the maintainer does not have privileges to maintain the objects. (IZ46774)

- The 'DASAUTO' command can be run by a non-privileged user. (IZ40352)

- It may be possible for an unauthorized user to insert, update, or delete rows in a table. (IZ50079)


Apply IBM DB2 version 9.5 Fix Pack 4.
