New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 6.4


The remote database server is affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities.


According to its version, the installation of IBM DB2 9.7 running on the remote host is prior to Fix Pack 5. It is, therefore, affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities :

- On Unix and Unix-like systems with both the Self Tuning Memory Manager (STMM) feature enabled and the 'DATABASE_MEMORY' option set to 'AUTOMATIC', local users are able to carry out denial of service attacks via unknown vectors. (IC70473 / CVE-2011-1373)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the version of Java that is bundled with the IBM Software Development Kit for Java. (PM32387 / CVE-2010-4476)


Apply IBM DB2 version 9.7 Fix Pack 5 or later.
