IBM DB2 9.7 < Fix Pack 4 Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Plugin ID 53547
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 9.7 running on the remote host is prior to Fix Pack 4. It is, therefore, affected by one or more of the following issues :

- An unspecified error in the Relational Data Services component can be exploited to update statistics for tables without the appropriate privileges. (IC72119)

- An error in the Relational Data Services component may grant users privileges to execute non-DDL statements after role membership has been revoked from its group.


Apply IBM DB2 version 9.7 Fix Pack 4 or later.
