IBM DB2 9.1 < Fix Pack 9 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 46173
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote database server is affected by multiple issues.


According to its version, the installation of IBM DB2 9.1 running on the remote host is affected by one or more of the following issues :

- The 'MODIFIED SQL DATA' table function is not dropped when a definer loses required privileges to maintain the objects. (IZ46773)

- A privilege escalation vulnerability exists in the DB2STST program (on Linux and Unix platforms only). (IC65408)

- A malicious user could use the DB2DART program to overwrite files owned by the instance owner. (IC65749)

- A heap overflow vulnerability exists in the 'REPEAT' scalar function. A remote attacker with a valid database connection could exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code subject to the privileges under which the database service operates. (IC65922)

- Special group and user enumeration operation on the DB2 server or DB2 Administrator Server (DAS) could trap when running on Windows 2008. (IC66099)

- A weakness in the SSL v3 / TLS protocol involving session renegotiation may allow an attacker to inject an arbitrary amount of plaintext into the beginning of the application protocol stream, which could facilitate man-in-the-middle attacks. (IC67848)


Apply IBM DB2 Version 9.1 Fix Pack 9 or later.
