medium Nessus Plugin ID 46766


The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


According to its version, the installation of IBM DB2 9.7 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. (IC63548)

- A privilege escalation vulnerability exists in the DB2STST program (on Linux and Unix platforms only). (IC65742)

- A malicious user could use the DB2DART program to overwrite files owned by the instance owner. (IC65762)

- The scalar function REPEAT contains a buffer overflow that a malicious user with a valid database connection could manipulate, causing the DB2 server to trap. (IC65935)

- Special group and user enumeration operation on the DB2 server or DB2 Administrator Server (DAS) could trap when running on Windows 2008. (IC66643)

- It is possible to execute non-DDL statements even after an user's DBADM authority has been revoked. (IC66815)

- If the database configuration parameter 'AUTO_REVAL' is set to 'IMMEDIATE', system granted privileges are not regenerated. (IC67008)

- 'Monitor Administrative Views' available in SYSIBMADM schema are publicly viewable. (IC67819)

- 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. (IC68055)

- By sending a specially crafted packet to the Tivoli Monitoring Agent (KUDDB2), which listens on TCP port 6014 by default, it may be possible to trigger a denial of service condition. (IC68762)
