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


According to its version, the installation of IBM DB2 9.1 running on the remote host is prior to Fix Pack 11. It is, therefore, affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities :

- The version of Java that is bundled with the application can enter an infinite loop when handling certain operations related to floating point numbers.

- The Distributed Relational Database Architecture (DRDA) contains an error that can allow denial of service conditions when handling certain maliciously crafted requests. (CVE-2012-0710)


Apply IBM DB2 Version 9.1 Fix Pack 11 or later.
